Chelsea have been linked with a move for Roma duo Emerson Palmieri and Edin Dzeko. But it seems it’s with the left-back that much progress has been made, as reports from Italy claim Chelsea are set to announce the signing of Emerson Palmieri on Monday.
The full-back has been on the transfer news that he’s heading to Stamford Bridge for several weeks, but it now seems the deal is finally over the line.
Reports claim Chelsea’s double move which included Dzeko and Palmieri stalled the move, and Italian outlet Gazzetta dello Sport now claim Chelsea have reached an agreement with Roma and that Emerson will be unveiled as their player as soon as Monday.
The agreement according to reports, was reached on Thursday after it became clear any deal for Dzeko would drag on into next week.
So, Palmieri could be the latest signing to be unveiled by the club.
