Roma left-back Emerson Palmieri has agreed to join Chelsea on a four-year deal according to a report on Standard Sport.
Palmieri’s arrival at Stamford Bridge will see Kenedy join Newcastle United on loan.
Palmieri is expected to provide cover in Chelsea’s left wingback position and he would be paid around £42,000-a-week according to the report on Standard Sport.
The 23-year-old is due in London to undergo a medical before completing his £20 million switch to Chelsea.
Palmieri has just returned to full fitness after a serious knee injury ruled him out for most of the current season.
