Italy boss Roberto Mancini has encouraged Chelsea defender Emerson Palmieri to find first-team football in Serie A.
Since leaving Roma for Stamford Bridge in January 2018, Palmieri has made just 45 starts and seven substitute outings in all competitions.
With the full-back having fallen down the pecking order under Frank Lampard, Mancini has admitted that he would like to see the 25-year-old return to his homeland.
Speaking to Gazzetta dello Sport, Mancini said: "As for the full-backs, we knew Adam Masina, although he disappeared from the radar a bit after his move to Watford.
"It would be nice if Emerson Palmieri, who hasn't played much for Chelsea, could come and play in Italy."
