Out the door? Emerson Royal linked with move away from Tottenham

Tottenham Hotspur are expected to undergo a massive overhaul in the upcoming summer transfer window as a mass exodus is planned at White Hart Lane.

While numerous players have been linked with a Spurs exit, Emerson Royal has been one of the names that Daniel Levy & Co. would be willing to hear offers for. There were reports earlier this week (h/t Football Insider) suggesting the Brazilian could be heading for pastures beyond N17 if any offer around £20 million arrives.

The Lilywhites brought Emerson Royal from La Liga giants Barcelona in a highly anticipated deal for £25.8 million in 2021. However, the Brazil international hasn’t been able to replicate his Spanish top-tier form in the Premiership.

Following a brief spell as the first-choice right back at the commencement of the season, however, Pedro Porro took his position and has been indispensable this season. However, Emerson still managed to aggregate twenty-one appearances in the Premier League in the ongoing campaign, although the majority of those have come in a filler role at left-back and center-back.

With a move away from White Hart Lane looking likely, Serie A giants AC Milan have been subject to recent links to the Brazilian full-back in the Italian media. Gazzetta dello Sport insists that the Milan Reds have established significant interest in the 25-year-old. However, the asking price for the North Londoners could be hefty for them as of now. 

AC Milan will be looking for an upgrade for Davide Calabria, with a few supporters growing concerned about his contributions in high-stakes games. However, Milan will be looking to sort out their managerial position before dipping into the transfer market, with Pioli linked with the possibility of a Milan exit this summer.
