Napoli want Chelsea defender on a short-term loan deal

As the days go on and we go deeper into January, expect to hear a bit more about some potential Chelsea outgoings.

Frank Lampard has a rather large squad, too large in some areas of the pitch. He has five current first team centre backs, and three current first team left backs at his disposal. You’d image that he will be looking to sell/loan at least one centre back and one left back this window as a result.

Marcos Alonso has always looked like the most likely left back to be leaving the club this window, and he still might be.

However, Napoli are keen on signing Chelsea’s other backup left back Emerson Palmieri on a 6-month loan deal, according to The Telegraph.

Personally, I can only see it being Alonso that is allowed to leave this window, due to the fact that Emerson is ahead of him in the current pecking order and being used as rotation for Ben Chilwell by Lampard right now.
