Three European giants interested in Tottenham defender facing uncertain future under Conte

Atletico Madrid, Roma, and Juventus keen to sign Tottenham Hotspur right-back Emerson Royal

According to Football.London, Emerson Royal has attracted interest from Spain and Italy as he faces an uncertain future at Tottenham Hotspur.

Spurs agreed on a €30million to sign the right-back from Barcelona last summer, when Nuno Espirito Santo was running things at N17. He failed to impress in attack as well as defence under both Nuno and Antonio Conte.

But regardless of that, he was a regular fixture in our starting IX over the course of the season. Much of that could be attributed to a lack of quality options down that side, with Matt Doherty not doing enough to become our undisputed first-choice right-back.

And now, Atletico Madrid, AS Roma, and Juventus have been linked with a move for the Brazilian defender. Could he get more playing time there? That is certainly something one can only know if he moves to either of those clubs.

The Old Lady have Mattia Di Sciglio, Juan Cuadrado, and Danilo who can play down that flank in defence. Roma’s name being in the hat doesn’t make much sense either as they recently signed Zeki Celik from Lille to compete with Rick Karsdorp for starts.

Diego Simeone is a man who could make good use of Emerson in his side. Los Colchoneros saw Kieran Trippier depart for Newcastle United back in January, while Sime Vrsaljko left on a free transfer to join Olympiacos this summer.

Santiago Arias, who has returned from his loan spell at Granada, remains their only natural right-back in the senior team on paper. Spurs, meanwhile, seem like they wouldn’t be impacted a lot if Emerson leaves.

More Tottenham News:

They can hope to recoup some of the money they spent on him last year while also making some space on the wage books. The Lilywhites signing Djed Spence along with Conte playing Lucas Moura as a right wing-back shows that Emerson may not be needed at the club anymore.
