Real Madrid reportedly planning a surprise approach for Tottenham defender

According to Inter Live, Tottenham Hotspur right-back Emerson Royal has emerged as a transfer target for Real Madrid.

Emerson
Emerson has been Pedro Porro‘s right-back understudy for much of the season, but the Brazilian has been tasked with playing as a centre-back in Tottenham‘s last two games due to the North London club’s injury crisis and Cristian Romero serving a three-match ban for his red card against Chelsea.

The 24-year-old has given a good account of himself despite playing in a new position, but Inter Live has now suggested that his time at Spurs may be coming to an end.

Real Madrid is interested in Emerson Royal.

According to the source, Real Madrid has been watching the Tottenham star for’several weeks’ and could make a move for him once the transfer window opens in January.

Los Blancos are ‘desperately hunting for a right-back’ in the winter transfer window, according to the outlet, and ‘have already picked’ Emerson as their primary target.

However, it is stated that the La Liga giants are only willing to give €20 million (£17 million) for the former Real Betis player, but Tottenham are considered to value him at approximately €35 million (£30 million).

According to the publication, Emerson is ‘ready’ to leave Tottenham in pursuit of regular game time, and his choice is to leave the Premier League.  Spurs Online Opinion  Tottenham will not sell Emerson Royal in January since he is the primary cover for Pedro Porro at right-back. However, Spurs may aim to upgrade on the Brazilian during the summer transfer window.
