Report: West Ham Stance On Emerson Palmieri Revealed

Chelsea defender Emerson Palmieri is attracting keen interest from a Premier League club according to British media outlet TalkSports.

It was revealed that Premier League club West Ham United want to sign the 26-year-old from their fellow London team.

Hammers’ boss David Moyes wants to add quality to the left-back department of his team, and Emerson Palmieri is his prime target.

Left-backs Aaron Cresswell and Arthur Masuaku have not been able to convince David Moyes that they can consistently perform well for his team.

Aaron Cresswell is a shadow of the player that earned England caps, while Arthur Masuaku has flattered to deceive since signing for the club from Greek club Olympiacos.

Emerson Palmieri joined Chelsea from AS Roma for £17.5m in January 2018 and he has seven caps for the Italian national team.

He has made just 55 appearances for the Blues in his time at the club and the signing of another left-back in Ben Chilwell from Leicester City means that he would find regular playing time hard to come by.

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has several options for the left-back position from the aforementioned Ben Chilwell to club skipper Cesar Azpilicueta to Marcos Alonso.

Inter Milan and Juventus are also big admirers of Emerson Palmieri in the transfer market.
