Emerson Palmieri has today become the latest addition to the Chelsea squad after completing a transfer from Italian side Roma.

The 23-year-old has signed a four-and-a-half-year contract and will wear the number 33 shirt.

Upon signing for the Premier League champions, Emerson said: ‘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.’

Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia added: ‘We are delighted to welcome Emerson to the club. He is a young and talented player who strengthens the squad and will provide excellent competition for places as we pursue success in three different competitions.’ 

Emerson, full name Emerson Palmieri dos Santos, arrives following a fruitful and productive two-and-a-half seasons with Roma, where he established himself as an important member of the side and gained invaluable experience of playing in Europe.

A versatile left-sided player who can operate as a full-back, wing-back or in a more advanced role, Emerson is skilful, possesses a good range of passing and reads the game well for a player so young.

Having not featured for Roma in Europe this season he is eligible to play in all competitions for Chelsea.

Welcome to Chelsea, Emerson!

Conte wanted Alex Sandro, he receives this guy :D No words, I just wish him all the best with Chelsea shirt, at least I don't have any big expectations for him. And at least he is a LWB, it seems like the board are going in the right direction, but are definitely far away from the quality players that Chelsea needs.

Find it hard to get excited about someone I know nothing about but I don’t think he will play much,  don’t think he was even first choice at Roma. Alonso might sharpen his game now.

Answered this in the transfer thread, to throw some light on who we signed


Dude, this guy doesn't have 40 professional starts at age 23, and has 65 appearances as a professional in his entire career. Please enlighten me on what the heck you are backing up such expectations on?
He couldn't start for Santos!!!!!!
All he has is an okay season at Roma and a youth tournament in Brazil where he played 8 matches.
From the height of such glory I've seen zero evidence/fact he would displace Alonso from the team... I don't remember him from Santos, but based on the Copinha displays and the Roma matches (he only took part in about half of their total), there's absolutely nothing to be excited about... Actually he barely played enough as a professional to be rated either way.
It could work, but he's a huge gamble and a greater risk than Alonso, Baka, Zappa and Dani. Probably bigger than all of them together and I'm not exaggerating

He played 90 minutes in cup game against Torino in December. Have a look at that game if you have time, he was pretty good for his first start after ACL injury.

Watching him more on YouTube (I know, I know :P) and you know who he reminds me of? In terms of physique and playing style he seems similar to Kyle Walker. Very athletic, aggressive both defensively and attacking, and has great pace.

He's basically the polar opposite of Marcos Alonso.
