Chelsea star Emerson Palmieri joins West Ham of £13-plus transfer after wage breakthrough on five-year contract
WESR HAM have completed the signing of Chelsea defender Emerson Palmieri.
The Hammers began chasing the signature of the out-of-favour defender earlier this month.
And manager David Moyes has got his man – who has inked a four-year contract at the London Stadium – after bartering with the club’s London rivals.
An excerpt of a club statement read: ” West Ham United is delighted to announce the signing of Italy international defender Emerson
“The 28-year-old has joined the Hammers on a four-year contract, with a one-year option, for an undisclosed fee from fellow Premier League club Chelsea.
A pacy and technically proficient left-back or left wing-back renowned for his stamina and attacking qualities, Emerson has won the UEFA European Championship, UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League during a stellar career.”
