Emerson Palmieri to undergo Chelsea medical as move to West London nears completion

Chelsea look set to finally get their hands on Roma defender Emerson Palmieri with only days remaining in the January transfer window.

The Blues have let go of Kenedy and Baba Rahman, with the left-sided duo completing their loan moves to Newcastle and Schalke 04 respectively.

Now, Goal are reporting that Chelsea have agreed the fee for Emerson, believed to be around £17.5m plus add-ons, and the Blues have also come to an agreement on personal terms with the full-back.

He will sign on a four-and-a-half year deal at Stamford Bridge and will now undergo a medical in order to finalise his transfer from Italy to England.

However, it is extremely unlikely it will be a double swoop from Roma for Chelsea, as a deal to bring Edin Dzeko to Stamford Bridge is now off.

Least there was some positive news!
