He has played in England before
According to his agent, Sunderland attacking midfielder Emanuele Giaccherini dreams of joining Antonio Conte at Chelsea this summer.
The 31-year old was a regular in Conte’s starting 11 during Italy’s time in the Euros.
And his representative, Furio Valcareggi, admits that his client wants to follow his former national team boss out of Italy and to West London.
However, he also insists that Giaccherini is the subject of interest for many Serie A clubs, including Bologna, where he spent the whole of last season on loan from the Black Cats.
Dreams vs reality
When speaking to GazzaMercato, Valcareggi said: “Do we have an agreement with the Granata (Torino)? Not at this time, there has been contact made and there is interest.”
“Torino inquired about the costs and requirements of a possible deal, now we are both reflecting. But it is the same for Fiorentina and Bologna, who are assessing the situation before moving forward.”
“Chelsea remain a dream,” he added.
