The Blues have secured the signature of 23-year-old left-back Emerson Palmieri from Serie A side Roma, confirming the deal on their official website late on Tuesday evening.

Emerson, who has signed a four and a half year deal with the London club, is believed to have joined for a transfer fee of around £20 million (R338 million).

The player is excited to get life underway at Chelsea, saying he has been watching the competitive EPL since he was a teenager.

“I came here because it’s a great team with a great history. Today I am realising one of my dreams to pull on the shirt of such a great club,”

“English football is something I have been watching since I was 15 years old. It is a really beautiful game over here but it is going to be even more beautiful to play it.”

Emerson will provide great competition for current first team left wing-back Marcos Alonso, who has scored seven goals and assisted a further three strikes this season.
