West Ham want to sign Chelsea left-back Emerson Palmieri this summer, according to the Athletic’s David Ornstein. And Frank Lampard is allegedly keen to move him on.
It is obvious for everyone to see that David Moyes must sign a new left-back this summer.
Aaron Cresswell is a clear weak-link, and he could end up costing us very dearly this season.
Everyone is down in the dumps at the London Stadium at the moment. The summer transfer window has been a long and arduous one thus far.
But with a few exciting new signings, things could change very quickly.
And the Athletic’s David Ornstein claims that West Ham boss David Moyes wants to bring Chelsea left-back Emerson Palmieri to the London Stadium before the transfer window slams shut.
Frank Lampard is willing to let the Italy international leave Stamford Bridge this summer, according to the Express.
The 26-year-old, who earns £75,000 per week (Spotrac), is ideally suited to playing as a wing-back what with his attacking style.
In 15 Premier League outings for Chelsea last season, the former Roma ace averaged 1.5 tackles, 1.2 interceptions and 0.9 clearances per game (Who Scored).
The Blues parted with with £17.6 million two-and-a-half years ago to bring him to west London (BBC). So he must have something about him.
But he clearly no longer features in the plans of Frank Lampard. And West Ham could do a lot worse than Emerson. The 26-year-old would certainly be an upgrade on Aaron Cresswell, that’s for sure.
