According to Sky Sports, the Stamford Bridge dwellers forked out an eyewatering £42.5 million to land the services of the Englishman on a seven-year deal.

Incredibly, the youngster has gone on to form an integral part of Mauricio Pochettino's team since his arrival.

Despite Chelsea's otherwise underwhelming campaign, Palmer has been one of the major positives at the club.

To put his impressive performances into perspective, the 21-year-old has contributed 26 goals across competitions since he moved to the west London club.

Chelsea ready to offer Palmer bumper new deal

According to Daily Star, Chelsea are now planning to reward Palmer with a bumper new deal.

The publication reports that the Englishman could pocket as much as £150k a week from next season.

The payout will put him closer to some of the best-paid players at the club.

Palmer is currently understood to be on a £75k per week salary scale, meaning his wages would be doubled.

Meanwhile, the former Manchester City ace was in fine form on Sunday, as he helped Chelsea secure a semi-final spot in the FA Cup.

Palmer scored once and assisted another as Pochettino's men edged Championship side Leicester City 4-2 in the quarter-final.

Earlier, Sports Brief reported on Palmer earning widespread praise from fans on social media after scoring Chelsea's second goal against Leicester City.

He topped up his goal in the first half with a nonchalant assist as Mauricio Pochettino's men beat the Foxes 4-2 in a hard-fought tie.

Despite his young age, the Englishman has become Chelsea's linchpin, as illustrated by his crucial goal in the FA Cup quarter-final clash against the Championship leaders.
