Report: Tottenham Hotspur listening to offers for Emerson Royal

By Eddie Razo -

When Tottenham Hotspur decided to spend £26-million on deadline day last summer for Emerson Royal, the north London club believed they were getting a player that would be a key figure in their backline for years to come. 

Fast forward over six months, and the transfer for the 23-year-old hasn’t gone as Spurs might have wanted. Royal’s erratic form has recently resulted in Matt Doherty earning more playing time. 

As a result, Spurs could be looking to part ways this summer and have it be a one-and-done year. The Sun reports that Spurs are willing to listen to offers for the Brazilian defender they signed from Barcelona. 

Now the source isn’t the most reliable; nonetheless, it isn’t far-fetched to think that manager Antonio Conte is letting Managing Director of Football Fabio Paratici that Royal isn’t part of his plans by letting Doherty play more. 

Furthermore, Tottenham was interested in Adama Traoré to convert him to a right wing-back in Conte’s system. However, that transfer didn’t occur as Barcelona came in with their last-minute offer for the Wolves man. 

Whether Royal leaves or not remains up in the air, but it’s clear Conte prefers an upgrade, whether it’s Doherty or another player.

Nobody will pay him £ 26 mill or close to it, the question is how much the Baldy wants to lose money wise?

Sorry shipmates this one makes me really angry.To think he almost signed for Goon FC only for Arteta to tell Edu he is cr*p. So Paratici steps in and snatches him.

Fab he ain’t.

Levy probably sees his value,quite rightly,at circa 50M.So another punt who will bleed the club until the end of his contract.
