Emerson in line for Azzurri call


La Gazzetta dello Sport: In the national team, there are likely going to be two new, young additions, Fiorentina’s Chiesa and Roma’s Emerson. The Fiorentina wide man has long been in the sights of manager Ventura and he considers him ready for the big leap over his older colleagues. Chiesa was not selected for the previous matches because he was committed with Fiorentina, but he will be in the new list of call-ups on 11-12 April after making his debut in the Under 21.

And with him, surely, the new “purchase” of the Azzurri, Emerson. The Brazilian of Roma had his eligibility for Italy approved by FIFA on 27 March and is ready for selection. He will be called and have a long list of colleagues in Conti, Florenzi, Zappacosta, Spinazzola, Darmian and De Sciglio. However, he’s having an excellent season in Rome.
