Emerson on his way to Chelsea

Chelsea have reached an agreement with West Ham United for the permanent transfer of Emerson Palmieri.

The Italy international was deemed surplus to requirements by the Blues last term, and he spent the season on loan with Lyon.

It was always anticipated that he would be sold this summer, and the Hammers have now won the race to secure his signature.

The east London outfit have agreed to pay £13 million for the left-back with a further £2m in the form of performance add-ons.

Emerson is set to become the Hammers' seventh signing of the summer.

Meanwhile, Emerson may not be the last Blues defender heading for the exit door. Trevoh Chalobah has been fancied to leave on loan.

The Blues graduate made a huge impression for the Blues last term, but he is now out-of-favour under manager Thomas Tuchel.

Inter Milan are weighing up a shock move for his services. The Nerazzurri are eyeing a dry loan for him, similar to Romelu Lukaku.
