West Ham Italy have recalled Emerson Palmieri from Chelsea

LONDON (AP) — Italy left back Emerson Palmieri joined West Ham from Chelsea for a reported fee of 15 million pounds ($17.75 million) on Tuesday.

Emerson, 28, spent 4 1/2 years at Chelsea but was never a regular and was on loan at French club Lyon last season.

He was born in Brazil and moved to Italy in 2014, where he was finally granted citizenship. He played in Azghori’s victory over England in the European Championship final last year.

Emerson has signed a four-year deal with West Ham with a one-year option, and is the club’s seventh signing of the transfer window.

West Ham have lost their first three Premier League games and are in last place, their worst start to a domestic season in 51 years.

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

“Personally, since the first day I came to England, I’ve always seen big clubs and I’ve always seen big games and I know the history of West Ham.”
