Tottenham’s transfer business set to continue as club ‘agree fee’ for Barcelona right-back Emerson Royal, who reportedly rejected Arsenal


After much uncertainty and turmoil surrounding Tottenham at the beginning of the transfer window, the club are set to end their excellent summer by bringing in one more player.

According to Fabrizio Romano, Spurs have reached an agreement with Barcelona for right-back Emerson Royal.

The deal is reportedly set to be worth €30million (£25.7m), including add-ons.

Talks are ongoing about personal terms but the defender is said to be keen on the move as the clock ticks down ahead of transfer deadline day.

It’s also a deal that will bring some much needed financial relief for Barcelona after all the struggles they are currently going through off the pitch.

According to Sky’s Kaveh Solhekol, Arsenal were interested in the right-back, however he would rather join their North London rivals instead.

It’s been quite a turnaround from chairman Daniel Levy and the club this summer after what seemingly looked like a dreadful period following the club’s seventh place finish from last season

Daniel Levy has stabilised the Spurs ship after what could have been a rocky summer

Having gone through an long list of managerial choices this summer, the club appointed former Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo.

Despite seemingly being one of the latter names on the list, it has proved to be a fine choice so far as he has made Spurs the only team left with a 100 per cent record in the Premier League after three matches.

The Lilywhites also managed to keep hold of their star man Harry Kane despite several mammoth bids from Manchester City.

The club have made several promising signings over the transfer window too, having brought in Pierluigi Gollini, Cristian Romero and Bryan Gil, as well as Pape Matar Sarr from Metz although he has been sent back to the club on loan.

Once Emerson comes in, it will be Tottenham’s fifth signing of the summer and should help them embark on a new and what looks the be a very promising era under Santo.
