Official: Roma sign Ponce & Emerson

Roma have confirmed the arrivals of Emerson Palmieri and Ezequiel Ponce from Santos and Newell’s Old Boys respectively.

The Giallorossi have been busy in the transfer window, signing the likes of Wojciech Szczesny, Lucas Digne, Mohamed Salah, Antonio Rudiger and Edin Dzeko.

And they have pushed two late deals over the line late on Serie A’s deadline day, moving for the Brazilian defender and the Argentine attacker.

Emerson, who joins on loan, spent last season at Palermo and made nine first-team appearances for the Sicilians.

Ponce, meanwhile, arrives on a permanent deal for an initial €4.2 million having signed a five-year contract at the Stadio Olimpico side.
