Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is reportedly planning a summer transfer for Leicester ace Ben Chilwell.
Chilwell has made 118 appearances for the Foxes since his debut in 2015 and has regularly impressed at full-back.
Manchester City are also believed to be keen on the England international, with a fee of around £50m expected to be demanded by Leicester.
And the Daily Mail claim that Lampard could sell Emerson this summer in order to fund a potential deal for Chilwell.
It’s claimed that both Juventus and Napoli are interested in Emerson, who has fallen behind Marcos Alonso and Cesar Azpilicueta in the Stamford Bridge pecking order.
Chelsea could receive £25m for Emerson with Juventus boss Maurizio Sarri a fan of the Chelsea man.
Chilwell has consistently shone at the King Power with his Leicester team-mate Christian Fuchs recently praising his fellow defender.
“He has definitely improved,” Fuchs said. “He is still a young player who is playing at a very high level.
“He has a good amount of England caps already, which just shows his ability.

“At an early age like that, to play for the national team for that amount of games is really good.
“As a young player, I have been in that situation. You still find yourself learning a lot from games and facing other teams.
“So, he is in a good place and I think he will be one of the top left-backs in England for years to come.

“The good thing for him is that, at 23, he is still young, with a lot of potential to improve in the future.”
Chelsea have been linked with a number of potential replacements at left-back with Porto star Alex Telles also believed to be of interest.
He could cost around £40m though it’s currently unclear when the transfer window will open as the Premier League remains postponed due to coronavirus.
