Ben Chilwell’s arrival at Stamford Bridge has dropped Emerson back to being the third-choice left-back in Frank Lampard’s pecking order.
And The Independent report on West Ham and Inter carefully monitoring his situation.
Antonio Conte’s Inter have been linked with Emerson over a number of transfer windows.
Inter focused their efforts on completing a deal for fellow full-back Aleksandar Kolarov.
The deal for the 34-year-old is not thought to have halted their interest in Emerson, 26.
Instead, they are reportedly keen to open talks over a loan switch with a permanent transfer costing in the region of £23million.
