Napoli go for Chelsea fullback Emerson

Napoli are moving for Chelsea fullback Emerson Palmieri.

Gazzetta dello Sport says Napoli have made the 26-year-old their top target. Emerson is valued at around £13million by the Blues yet the Neapolitans hope to knock that down to £10m.

The Serie A side are also hoping to reduce the player's wages due to the difficult economic circumstances.

Currently earning £75,000-a-week, that figure reportedly does not fit into Napoli's planned salary structure.

New Napoli coach Luciano Spalletti knows all about Emerson from their time together at Roma.
