The arrival of Ben Chilwell, in the summer transfer window, has ended any arguments relating to who should be the first choice left-back at Stamford Bridge.
But, as we have seen already this season, Chilwell has suffered a few injuries that have required cover to be used, with Frank Lampard having to select either Alonso or Emerson.
Yesterday, a piece of transfer speculation emerged, courtesy of Corriere Dello Sport inferring that the Serie A side, Napoli, are looking to secure Emerson on a loan deal.
Now, personally, if we are going to dispense with the services of either Emerson or Alonso, I would prefer the club to do a permanent deal.
A loan deal only delays the inevitable!
But if Chelsea decide to move Emerson on, would they keep Alonso, or would the ever-dependable Azpilicueta be used as back-up when Chilwell is unable to play?
