As previously reported, all parties had been in agreement on a move but the deal has been held up by the Blues' interest in Emerson's team-mate Edin Dzeko.

The 23-year-old has signed a four-and-a-half year deal at Stamford Bridge and will wear the No.33 shirt.

Chelsea have signed Brazilian defender Emerson Palmieri from Roma on a long-term deal thought to be worth £23m.

The 23-year-old Brazilian - who switched his worldwide allegiance to Italy - has been assigned the number 33 shirt at Chelsea.


Marcos Alonso has continued to be effectively Chelsea's only option in the left wing-back role and he has started all 24 of their Premier League games this season, as well as five of their six Champions League matches.

Emerson, who began his career at Santos in Brazil, arrived in Serie A on loan at Palermo in August 2014. "Today I am realising one of my dreams to pull on the shirt of such a great club", the full-back said.

"Emerson Palmieri has today become the latest addition to the Chelsea squad after completing a transfer from Italian side Roma", the club announced on its official website.

The 23-year-old Brazilian has chosen to play his worldwide football for Italy, having Italian roots. The departure of Kenedy on loan to Newcastle United has left a void in Conte's squad, and it very much looks as though Palmieri is going to be the man to fill it.
