Chelsea’s summer recruitment of Marc Cucurella has pushed the Italian too far down the pecking order, as he failed to make either of their opening Premier League match day squads so far.
Chelsea have Cucurella and Ben Chilwel whom are both promising and were keen to offload Emerson to West Ham. The deal was almost over with both clubs close on agreeing £13m and £2m add ons.
The defender spent the 2021/22 campaign on loan to Olympique Lyon, with the Ligue 1 side paying only £0.5m fee, so it is anyone’s guess as to why the deal with the Hammers has collapsed this close to the transfer deadline.
