Juventus head coach Maurizio Sarri is allegedly keen to secure a reunion with Chelsea defender Emerson Palmieri during the January transfer window.

Palmieri began the campaign in Frank Lampard's starting lineup, leading to suggestions that the Blues may be ready to offer the Italian a new contract.

However, a thigh problem sustained on international duty has resulted in a spell on the sidelines for the left-back, giving Marcos Alonso a chance to impress in his absence.

According to Calciomercato, Juventus may now reignite their interest in 25-year-old as they consider their options in that area of the pitch.

The Serie A champions are now managed by former Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri, who used Palmieri on 27 occasions in all competitions over the course of last season.

The English outfit are unlikely to contemplate a sale unless they are able to reduce their transfer ban.
