Chelsea defender Emerson Palmieri suggests that he is open to a return to Serie A in the future.

Chelsea defender Emerson Palmieri has acknowledged that he is open to a future return to Serie A, despite insisting that he is in no rush to leave Stamford Bridge.

Having made just 17 appearances since the appointment of Frank Lampard, Palmieri has been linked with a move to Juventus during the next transfer window.

However, while admitting that another stint in Serie A appeals to him, the left-back has suggested that he is happy with life in West London.

Speaking to Sky Sport Italia, the 25-year-old said: "I was very happy in Serie A, including with the culture, which is also why I chose to play for Italy.

"A return to Serie A could happen, but I have a contract with Chelsea and I'm in no rush to go anywhere. It has been a wonderful experience at Chelsea, as first there was [Antonio] Conte, so obviously it was easier to deal with an Italian coach."

The Italy international still has just over two years remaining on his contract.
