Emerson is set to be welcomed back at Chelsea next season after his loan spell at Lyon, with the left-back making 36 appearances in all competitions for the French side.

He also believed to be keen on a return and competing for a starting spot against Ben Chilwell, who spent the majority of the campaign on the sidelines due to injury.

There is speculation over the future of Jorginho though, with the Blues reportedly set to allow him to leave the club in the summer.

He has been linked with a move to Serie A giants Juventus amid a potential summer departure from Stamford Bridge.

However it is believed that such a transfer would depend on the Blues' valuation of the player, with the Italian club not wanting to pay a large fee.
