“Let’s wait and see…” – Tottenham man confirms European heavyweights are in conversation to sign him

By Mehdi Gokal -

Tottenham Hotspur defender Emerson Royal appears to be edging closer to a departure from North London this summer.

He has fallen down the pecking order since Pedro Porro joined the club. The Spaniard has established himself as the key member of Ange’s squad, reducing Royal’s role to the bench.

Amid the ongoing interest from Milan, the Brazilian international has now spoken about the ongoing speculation.

Emerson acknowledged Milan’s interest and the ongoing discussions but clarified that no concrete negotiations with Spurs have taken place yet.

Having found limited starting opportunities under manager Ange Postecoglou last season, Emerson admitted that the prospect of joining the Italian giants is attractive.

He noted Milan’s historical connection with Brazilian players, which adds to the appeal of a potential transfer.

Despite having a contract that runs until June 2026, the right-back does not seem to fit into Postecoglou’s long-term plans.

Reports indicate that discussions between Milan and Emerson’s agent, Stefano Castagna, are progressing positively.

Serie A club views the defender as a valuable addition to their squad, aiming to enhance their defensive options.

Emerson himself addressed these rumours in an interview on Andre Hernan’s YouTube channel, confirming his willingness to the move if it materialises.

Royal said:

“The truth is that I still don’t have anything defined. Obviously, to know that Milan is in conversation with the club [Spurs], they are looking for information on me.

“For me, it is very gratifying because Milan is a team known for having Brazilian players, right. We know there have been some great Brazilians to have played for them. Let’s wait and see what’s going to happen.”

Tottenham has set a £20 million valuation for Emerson, which aligns with his current market value. This amount is considered reasonable for Milan, who are looking for a dependable full-back.

The coming weeks will likely determine where Emerson’s future lies. If the transfer happens, Spurs aim to use funds from his sale to strengthen their squad, particularly by signing a versatile defender.
