I currently have i5 4590 and rx 580.
I tried playing tencent gaming buddy pubg emulator but I have a lot of framedrops due to 95% cpu usage.

I can buy a used i5 7500 or a new ryzen 5 2400g. The price is almost the same in my place including the mobo and ram.

what should i do ?

The 2400gnis probably slightly better up front and offers a much better upgrade path. Through 2020. The 7500 is basically a dead end socket that's been retired for almost 2 years

First - what emulator are you using? It might not be optimized for your system which is why.
Secondly - I’d recommend the i5 if it’s the same price in your area. Slightly older architecture, but a little better than the 2400g.

Even though the i5 7500 will perform a little better in games, I wouldn't recommend it, since there isn't an upgrade path. Even if you pay a little more, I would got with the 8th gen instead (i3 8350k / i5 8400).
Or even better, go with Ryzen 5 1600 (very good deals available) and a b450 motherboard and have a clear upgrade path to a 3rd gen Ryzen or better.
