Italian flies in to complete medical as Chelsea transfer talks pretty much wrapped up!
Emerson Palmieri has arrived in France to complete his move away from Chelsea.
Chelsea signed the former Santos star for £17.6million in January 2018, as he was signed by the Blues as a back-up option for Marcos Alonso, who proved many people wrong by becoming one of the best left-backs in the country.
But Emerson is not one of the main contenders for that ;eft-back spit under Thomas Tuchel, and with having Ben Chilwell in the squad too, the Blues have decided that now is the time to let Emerson depart the club
Recent reports have claimed The Blues are keen on offloading the 27-year-old this summer given they are already covered at left-back, with both Ben Chilwell and Marcos Alonso set to stay at Stamford Bridge.
And they adds that the west Londoners are hoping to get around £15million for the former Roma ace, with Lyon ready to pay that fee in the next couple of weeks
Talks are pretty much done as Emerson has flown to France to complete his medical
Chelsea have spent some serious money this transfer window and selling a number of players to balance that book is a good move to make. Emerson has been a solid player for Chelsea over the past few seasons, but now is the right time to leave
Chelsea no longer need him in the squad, so getting £15 million in the bank is a good bit of business. So when the deal is announces, Chelsea fans will surely wish the defender all the best and thank him for his service to the club
So we will just be waiting to see this deal get announced, and what Emerson has to say about his stay at the Blues
