Just before Chelsea played West Ham, Hammers boss David Moyes had said that West Ham considered signing Cole Palmer from Manchester City.

Cole Palmer has been a revelation for Chelsea this season, and now Brighton manager Roberto De Zerbi, has admitted Brighton were also interested in Palmer. However, the 22-year-old attacking midfielder opted for a move to Stamford Bridge.

“We tried to bring him in the transfer market last summer. We thought he could be a top player,” De Zerbi told a news conference, as he spoke of Cole Palmer.

“The qualities of Palmer are clear for everybody, but not when he played for Manchester City. This season he is playing very well, he is scoring a lot of goals.”

“The quality of Palmer is very high,” he added, as his team prepare to take on Chelsea in midweek.

“He’s a problem for us tomorrow because he can start in the winger position and come inside or [play as] a number 10 as well.”
