Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has revealed that the injury crisis in the club is growing with time and if they must keep up with the competition then, the club must do something immediately.
In view of the above, Chelsea are considering a recall for left-back Emerson Palmieri this month.
The defender was loaned to Lyon for a season, with Chelsea attempting to negotiate a break in that agreement.
According to respected journalist Fabrizio Romano, Chelsea’s injury issues in the left back spot mean they are considering adding Emerson to their squad for the remainder of this season.
The issue is that Chelsea do not have a clause to bring back Emerson, which means they must offer compensation to Lyon to bring the 27-year-old full-back to the club.
News of Emerson possibly returning to Chelsea likely means they are not considering a bid for Everton’s Lucas Digne, who is now being linked to Aston Villa.
