Emerson struggling with Tottenham

Tottenham would sign Emerson Royal from FC Barcelona on transfer deadline day during the 2021 summer window.

The Brazilian is believed to have set the club back €30m, and is also understood to have attracted interest from Spurs’ north London rivals, Arsenal, over the summer.

Since making the switch to Tottenham, Emerson has not had the best of times.

The right-back featured for 90 minutes vs Crystal Palace on his debut, coming in for heavy criticism from fans as his new side went on to lose 3-0.

Barcelona’s shock at Emerson deal

Despite his slow start, Emerson has continued to be a key feature for the north Londoners this term.

Even under new boss Antonio Conte, Emerson has maintained a starting berth. Apart from missing two games due to injury, the South American has started in every single one of the Italian’s league games as Spurs boss.

However, even though Conte has continued to pick Emerson, reports emerged recently that the former Inter Milan boss has doubts over Emerson’s ability to play as a right-wing-back.

Now, a further bit of information regarding Emerson has come to light that is unlikely to please Tottenham fans – though it may bring a smile to the faces of their London rivals Arsenal who, as mentioned above, did look to be interested in Emerson over the summer before they eventually signed Takehiro Tomiyasu.

As reported by The Telegraph, sources claim Barcelona still cannot believe Spurs offered to pay £25.8m for Emerson.

The same report, though, claims Tottenham are looking to add another right-wing-back to their squad, with Wolves’ Adama Traore mentioned.
