Tottenham Hotspur: Inter Milan could target Emerson Royal

Tottenham Hotspur: Inter Milan could target Emerson Royal - Premier League News

Tottenham Hotspur right-back Emerson Royal could now be targeted by Inter Milan, according to a new report.

The Lowdown: Emerson’s poor form

Tottenham manager Antonio Conte has reportedly identified right wing-back as one of the main areas that needs strengthening this month, and there have already been a whole host of different names spoken about.

Fabrizio Romano has claimed that Pedro Porro is at the top of their list, with the likes of Ivan Fresneda and Vanderson also being linked with moves, after uninspiring performances from Emerson.

The Brazilian received scathing criticism from journalist Josh Bunting earlier this season, who stated that he could be the worst player to play for Spurs in his lifetime, and he is currently ranked 14th in the squad for his average SofaScore match rating.

The Latest: Offered to Inter?

According to a report from Inter Live (via Sport Witness), Conte has not been convinced by the 23-year-old’s performances either, and will happily bring in an upgrade if possible.

As such, Tottenham could then look to sell Royal for around £22m, a deal that ‘could tease’ Inter as a potential replacement for Denzel Dumfries.

The Verdict: Great business

Tottenham signed the defender for £25.73m last September, and so considering he has not impressed for the club at all, being able to recoup the majority of that outlay would be a fantastic piece of business, if possible.

How much did Spurs pay to sign future legend and fan favourite David Ginola?

Football writer Seb Jenkins has claimed that the former Barcelona man has ‘lots of great attributes’, but these have scarcely been on show in a white shirt, offering precious little to Conte’s side going forward, registering just one Premier League assist this season.

Being able to sell the seven-time Brazil international could allow Spurs the required funds to sign Porro, who has proven himself to be a real creative force with Sporting CP, averaging 0.39 assists per 90 in the past year, in the 99th percentile compared to other full-backs.
