Chelsea seem they are on their way to complete and announce the transfer of a new player during the winter transfer windows before it closes by the end of this month, January.
Chelsea have only signed one player during this transfer windows who is Ross Barkley from the Premier Leauge Liverpool’s club, Everton FC, who was linked with the move to the Stamford Bridge since last summer where some reports say that he even passed the medical exam with Chelsea then he changed his mind on the deadline day and not signed with Chelsea.
According to Sky Sports, Chelsea seem they are so close to complete their second transfer this year, 2018, from the Italian Serie A side, A.S. Roma, where Chelsea are on the edge of signing the Brazilian defender, Emerson Palmieri, who will be a potential replacement for the Brazilian defender, David Luiz, who lost his place this season due to some issues with the Italian manager, Antonio Conte.
Moreover, Emerson Palmieri, is a huge addition for Chelsea where the Brazilian defender is also an Italian citizen, which means that he won’t need a complicated work permit in the UK to work, but he can work as a European.
In addition, Emerson Palmieri didn’t play in the Champions League this season with A.S Roma which means that Emerson Palmieri will be able to play with Chelsea in the Champions League next month against FC Barcelona in the group of 16 stage, and in the quarter-final, if Chelsea beats Barcelona.
