OFFICIAL: Emerson Palmieri Finally Completes Move From Chelsea To West Ham.

 Emerson Palmieri, a left back for Chelsea, has completed his move to West Ham United in London for a reported £13+2 million fee.

He joins the Hammers on a four-year contract that runs through 2026 with an additional year's option.

Emerson, who spent the majority of his time on the bench, out on loan, or (particularly early on) injured, leaves the Blues after five seasons and only 71 appearances. 

Nevertheless, the 28-year-old has won three European Cups with Chelsea Blue: the Europa League (2019), Champions League (2021), and Super Cup (2021). 

Born in Brazil, Emerson moved to Italian football in 2014, was granted Italian citizenship and switched international allegiance three years later, and has since won 27 caps, including a start in Italy’s Euro 2020 final victory over England at Wembley a year ago.

Emerson, who becomes the seventh new signing to join David Moyes’ squad this summer, is looking forward to wearing the No:33 shirt for the Claret and Blue of West Ham and continuing his career in east London.

“I’m very happy to be here and to arrive here,” said Emerson.

“It’s a big challenge for me, it’s a big team, so I’m very happy to be here and I’m ready.

“Personally, since the first day I arrived here in England, I always saw the big clubs and I always watched the big games and I knew the history about West Ham. The history is so, so big for this team and so when I knew about the interest for sure I said ‘Yes, let’s go, I want to go there’ and I’m here now!

“I can’t wait to get started in a West Ham shirt.”
