Emerson Palmieri signs on four-and-a-half year deal

Emerson Palmieri signs on four-and-a-half year deal”

The Daily Mail are now citing a report from Gazzetta dello Sport that claims an announcement for the signing of Palmieri is imminent and could even be confirmed today.

The Brazilian press never really followed Emerson Palmieri's links to Chelsea very close, but now confirms the player is indeed moving to Stamford Bridge.

However, that deal collapsed and instead he joins separately, for an initial fee believed to be around £17.5 million.

Aged just 23, the Brazilian youth worldwide still has many years to improve and hit his peak.

According to Tuttosport the Old Lady hopes to wrap a up a deal with the 23-year-old in the coming weeks. Now, Emerson only finds himself in a battle to try to oust the most prolific goal-scoring defender in the Premier League instead.

Emerson also spoke to ChelseaFC.com about this new adventure in London.

"English football is something I have been watching since I was 15 years old".

"Emerson Palmieri has today become the latest addition to the Chelsea squad after completing a transfer from Italian side Roma", the club announced on its official website. "It is a really handsome game over here".

"We are delighted to welcome Emerson to the club".

"If you remember I said that in case the club decides on loan Kenedy we have two options, to buy another player or work with a young player like [Dujon] Sterling, who is a good prospect", he said.
