West Ham: Insider backs Emerson talks out of Rush Green

West Ham: Insider backs Emerson talks out of Rush Green -West Ham Transfer Rumours

West Ham United insider Claret & Hugh, backing reports in the last day, have shared their own update on talks to sign Chelsea defender Emerson Palmieri.

The Lowdown: Irons hopes alive?

Earlier this week, reports suggested that a move for the Italy international became highly unlikely due to a difference over personal terms – even despite both Chelsea and the Hammers being close over an agreed fee.

Where will West Ham finish at the end of 2022/2023?

Indeed, a transfer for Emerson looked in severe doubt at one stage with alternative targets, like Burnley ace Charlie Taylor, emerging at West Ham.

However, in a dramatic twist for supporters, it appears a move for the 28-year-old could be back on the cards with Sky journalist Dharmesh Sheth claiming negotiations are back on.

The Latest: Insider backs reports…

Now, sharing their own update, a West Ham insider has backed those claims whilst sharing what they know.

Claret & Hugh state that the Irons have indeed reopened talks to sign Emerson and are ‘hopeful of reaching a compromise’ over personal terms – which was the main issue last time.

Talks are apparently ongoing with the player’s camp, as well as with Chelsea over the fee, with Moyes making a left-back signing the current priority.

The Verdict: Get it done…

When given the opportunity, Emerson can be a really useful player, as explained by Blues boss Thomas Tuchel.

The German raved over his defender’s ‘unbelievable’ qualities last year with the full-back arguably finding life difficult at Stamford Bridge due to the competition for places.

Both Marc Cucurella and Ben Chilwell fill the left-back slot in west London and perhaps joining West Ham would grant Emerson a new lease of life.
