Good morning! Let’s start the day off with some good news. Tottenham Hotspur and Barcelona have agreed terms to sign right back Emerson Royal, according to Fabrizio Romano.
Emerson Royal from Barcelona to Tottenham, done deal and here-we-go confirmed. €30m add ons included from Spurs, paperworks completed during the night. ⚪️ #THFC— Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) August 31, 2021
Official announcement today after medicals. Contract until June 2026. Real Betis receive €5m from the deal. https://t.co/hfGKf1kfJJ
The agreement, as stated above, is for €30m plus add-ons, a pretty decent price for a 22-year old fullback, all things considered. Emerson is reportedly undergoing a medical at White Hart Lane but an announcement should be expected before too long.
This obviously creates a glut of fullbacks at the club, so hopefully Spurs can offload a couple of them before the window slams shut at 11 p.m. UK time today (that’s 6 pm in the USA).
New players are exciting! Emerson looks to have a high ceiling and enough potential to already challenge for a starting role in Tottenham’s first XI. Obviously it’s not confirmed yet so we wait for the official annoucnement from Spurs’ social media channels before starting the GIF party.
