The Samba ace is expected to depart the Stadio Olimpico this summer, but his destination remains a mystery.
"I am waiting on news," said Emerson.
"There was a moment with Real Madrid, but I was ready to talk about money."
Italian sources now claim that Juventus are favourites to land him and their general manager Luciano Moggi confirmed that talks are ongoing.
"It's a really complicated thing," said Moggi.
"We will try to sign him but without making financial foolishness."
Moggi also confirmed that their own midfielder Enzo Maresca could be on his way to Fiorentina after they agreed to let him leave Turin.
However, the player is not keen on a move to The Artemio Franchi and Juve will need to convince him that his future lies elsewhere.
"There is an agreement with Fiorentina," confirmed Moggi.
"Should he decide to leave, it will be good, otherwise he will stay here."
New coach Fabio Capello added: "For the moment Maresca has refused Fiorentina. Should he accept then it will be good, otherwise we will have to see."
