Clubs could reach an agreement for €20m defender by next week as move edges closer

By Mehdi Gokal -

A deal for Tottenham defender Emerson Royal is not too far away from being finalised.

Tottenham are working to reshape their squad for the upcoming season, with plans to offload several players.

One significant name on this list is full-back Emerson Royal, who has attracted considerable interest from AC Milan.

The Italian club wants him and have reportedly already agreed personal terms with the player but has yet to reach an agreement with Tottenham.

Tottenham are looking for €20m for the defender but Milan have been trying to get him on a discounted price.

According to the latest from Gazzetta dello Sport, discussions between Milan and Tottenham have reportedly progressed positively, bringing both parties closer to reaching an agreement.

Although nothing has been finalised, Milan are eager to add the Spurs right-back to their roster.
Emerson has not been a primary choice for Tottenham manager Ange Postecoglou, often serving as a backup in the defensive line.

Despite having two years left on his contract, which runs until June 2026, Emerson does not fit into Postecoglou’s plans, prompting the club to seek potential suitors.

The report adds that AC Milan could end up paying Spurs close €20m to get the deal done, with suggestions that next week could be important as negotiations are coming towards a closure.

The Lilywhites will hope to reinvest the transfer fee to strengthen their squad, particularly aiming to sign a versatile defender capable of playing both as a centre-back and a full-back. This move would improve Tottenham’s defensive options as they prepare for the next season.
