Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly made an offer for Barcelona defender Emerson Royal, according to Daniele Longo.
The full-back has been with the Spanish giants since 2019, but has spent the last couple of seasons on loan with fellow Spanish side Real Betis, where he has evidently made a good impression.
Spurs finished seventh in the Premier League table last term, and are evidently keen to strengthen their defensive options before the summer transfer window reaches a conclusion.
It is claimed by Longo that Barcelona value Emerson at £25million, although it remains to be seen as to whether Spurs will match their valuation in the coming days.
The transfer window is set to slam shut on Tuesday evening, and it seems as though it’s set to be a potentially busy few days with Nuno Espirito Santo’s side looking to challenge for a top-four finish in the Premier League this term.
Plenty of Spurs supporters took to social media to issue their thoughts on the club’s rumoured bid for Emerson Royal, with the majority being delighted to hear that they’re pushing ahead with their interest in striking a deal with the 22-year-old.
What do Spurs fans make of this Emerson update?
“Nah no way is this the real life.”
“Huge if we get Emerson.”
“Big if true guys. Might have to bite the bullet and praise Paratici for some haters.”
Given the update on Emerson and the bid they’ve put in, it promises to be an exciting end to the transfer window for Spurs and their fans as they look to see what their club do in terms of new signings.
Tottenham Hotspur are set to take on Watford in their next league match, as they look to pick up an important three points to keep the pressure on the teams in and around them in the Premier League table.
