Everton: Emerson targetted in January - Everton Transfer Rumours

According to Todofichajes.com, Everton want to sign Emerson Royal during the January transfer window.

Emerson wanted

The Toffees have been linked with a move for the 21-year-old for quite a while, and now it seems they want to make their move in the next transfer window.

What year did Moyes first take charge at Everton?

Barcelona, his current club, want €30m (£27m) to let him go halfway through the season. However, as Ancelotti wants another right-back according to the report, the Merseyside outfit are looking to get the deal done as soon as possible.

Can solve an Ancelotti problem

Right-back has been something of an issue for the manager so far this term. Seamus Coleman is his number one choice in that position, but he is now 32 and cannot be relied upon to be available for every single game anymore.

Jonjoe Kenny was loaned out to Schalke last term, so there is no suggestion that he has a big part to play at Goodison Park this campaign. Against Southampton, Ancelotti even turned to new signing Ben Godfrey, a central defender, to line up on that side of the back four.

A natural in his position, Emerson would be a fantastic signing at right-back. For Real Betis last season, he racked up three goals and six assists in 33 La Liga games, displaying his offensive ability. He has even been compared to Brazil legend Dani Alves – if Emerson turns out to be anywhere near as good as his compatriot, he could be a worldwide star.
