Juventus are readying a bid for Chelsea left-back Emerson in January, with coach Maurizio Sarri looking to bolster his defensive options at the Allianz Stadium.
After leaving Stamford Bridge for Turin over the off-season, the 60 -year-old has made a solid start to life back in Serie A, his side sitting top of the table. La Vecchia Signora have failed to win just one of their opening seven
fixtures in the league, though three members of the backline are currently missing through injury.
Central-defender Giorgio Chiellini is expected to be out until March due to a cruciate ligament rupture, whilst full-back pairing Danilo and Mattia De Sciglio are likewise absent with muscular issues.
According to CalcioMercato, Sarri is aiming to bring in reinforcements once the winter transfer window opens, with the Bianconeri boss identifying Emerson as his preferred option.
The Brazilian-born defender has made six appearances for Chelsea in all competitions during the 2019/20 campaign, five of which have come in the Premier League.
