According to reporter Marcelo Bechler, Tottenham are preparing a late offer for Barcelona’s Emerson Royal.
The Lowdown: Not much time left
We are now into the final 48 hours of the summer transfer window, and Spurs may still have some business left in them before the end of Deadline Day.
They have so far brought in four fresh faces (Transfermarkt), and it seems that they may be looking to bring in another new player.
The Latest: Spurs eye Emerson Royal
It seems that Tottenham are looking to capture right-back Emerson from Barcelona.
They are already said to have made an offer of €20m (£17.2m) plus Serge Aurier for the Brazilian (ESPN), but that was rejected. Spurs are preparing a new offer, but the Blaugrana are looking for €30m (£25.7m, TNT Sports).
The Verdict: Late dash
Spurs have made a positive start to the season, with their three 1-0 Premier League wins putting them top of the table (Sky Sports), while they are also through to the group stages of the inaugural Europa Conference League. However, this will be a long season, and Nuno Espirito Santo needs a strong squad to cope with all its demands.
Would you like to sign Emerson?
Royal has only made three appearances for Barcelona since signing for them in July, but the Spanish club’s financial problems (Bloomberg) means that any player could be for sale at the right place. In 79 matches for Real Betis, he scored five goals and provided ten assists, showing his ability to make an impact in the final third.
The 22-year-old could be a real threat for Spurs if they were to capture his services.
