West Ham United signs Chelsea’s Italy left back Palmieri

Italy’s left winger Emerson Palmieri joined West Ham from Chelsea on Tuesday for a reported fee of £15 million ($17.75 million).

Emerson, 28, spent 4 1/2 years at Chelsea but was never a regular and spent last season on loan at French club Lyon.

He was born in Brazil and moved to Italy in 2014, where he eventually gained citizenship. Last year, he helped the Azzurri defeat England in the European Championship final.



Emerson is West Ham’s seventh signing of the transfer window, having signed a four-year contract with a one-year option.

West Ham has lost its first three Premier League games and is currently last in the table, marking the club’s worst start to a domestic season in 51 years.

“It’s a big challenge for me, it’s a big team, so I’m very happy to be here and I’m ready,” Emerson said.

“Personally, since the first day I arrived here in England, I always saw the big clubs and I always watched the big games and I knew the history about West Ham.”
