Fans of Tottenham Hotspur have been reacting to a post on Twitter, which relayed a report that claims Spurs are interested in a move for Real Betis right-back Emerson this summer.
So far this season, Emerson has highly impressed over his 26 La Liga appearances for Manuel Pellegrini’s side, with the 22-year-old scoring one goal and registering four assists, as well as averaging a WhoScored match rating of 7.03 – ranking him as the club’s second-best performer in the Spanish top flight.
Seemingly as a result of these fine displays, Estadio Deportivo recently reported that Tottenham, as well as Paris Saint-Germain, AC Milan, Inter and Bayer Leverkusen, are keeping a very close eye on the Brazil U23 international ahead of the summer transfer window, with Barcelona – who own 50% of the defender – thought to be demanding around €25 million (£21.7 million) for the sale of the £44,000-per-week ace.
And after The Spurs Express relayed news of Tottenham’s interest in the right-back on Twitter, fans of the club flocked to have their say on the matter, with many appearing to be delighted at the prospect of Spurs making a move for Emerson this summer.
Would Emerson be a good signing for Spurs?
So, what exactly did these Tottenham Hotspur fans have to say in reaction to the reported interest in Emerson?
“Yes, please. Still a bit raw but a great player with a huge upside.”
“Would be great.”
“He is very very good. Also cheap.”
“Please sign him.”
“I’VE BEEN WANTING THIS GUY FOR 2 YEARS.”
“Probably the best option out there, £21m is an absolute steal.”
All in all, it would seem as if these Tottenham fans are delighted at their club’s links with a move for Emerson this summer, and considering just how impressive the right-back has been so far this season, these comments seem rather justified.
