Roma close in on Emerson

Roma are reportedly close to bringing in Santos full-back Emerson Palmieri on loan with the option to buy. 

The 21-year-old Brazilian spent last season on loan at Palermo, where he made nine Serie A appearances.

Tuttomercatoweb has reported that the two clubs are negotiating for the left-back’s transfer, which should be completed once Ashley Cole’s departure is confirmed.

The website believes that Emerson will sign a three-year deal in Rome and that the deal will be for an initial loan with the option to buy, although no figures have been revealed yet.
