Chelsea are still trying to recall Emerson from his Lyon loan, Fabrizio Romano reports.
The Blues are trying to bolster their options at left wing-back, and Emerson is Thomas Tuchel’s preferred option.
Lyon have rejected Chelsea’s first approach. Now, the Premier League club is prepared to offer some kind of compensation to Lyon for a premature breakdown of the loan deal.
At the same time, a deal for Everton’s Lucas Digne is now looking very unlikely.
Everton still ask for a permanent transfer for their wantaway left-back while Chelsea would prefer a loan move. There are no advanced talks between the clubs.
