Chelsea are reportedly prepared to sell defender Emerson Palmieri for lower than their initial £25m valuation.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has reportedly reiterated to the club's board that he is willing to sell Emerson Palmieri this summer.

Last Saturday, the left-back played the full 90 minutes as the Blues succumbed to a 4-1 defeat to Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

However, his appearance was not enough to convince Lampard that the Italy international has a future at Stamford Bridge, even as deputy to Marcos Alonso.

According to Football Insider, Chelsea value Palmieri in the region of £18m, rather than at the previously-suggested fee of £25m.

The report suggests that the Premier League outfit are hopeful that their asking price will entice Inter Milan into stepping up their interest in the 26-year-old.

Palmieri made a total of just 20 outings in all competitions during the most recent campaign.
