Chelsea have announced the signing of Emerson Palmieri from Roma for a reported fee of €20 million.
Emerson has signed a four-and-a-half-year deal that will keep him under contract at Stamford Bridge until the summer of 2022. The 23-year-old began his career at Brazilian side Santos and has been at Roma since 2015, having joined on loan before his stay was made permanent the following season. Emerson is a left-sided defender who can play as a full-back or a wing-back and is expected operate as a backup for Marcos Alonso. The Brazilian-born uncapped Italy international has missed most of the season thus far as a result of a serious knee injury, so consider him a long-term signing to provide Chelsea with much needed depth moving forward.
