“The last few hours” – Sky Sports man shares update on 25-year-old linked with a move away

By Mehdi Gokal -

Tottenham defender Emerson Royal is nearing a potential departure from the club this summer, with AC Milan reportedly emerging as the frontrunner for his signature.

Sky Sports journalist Dharmesh Sheth recently shed light on Emerson’s situation during the Last Word on Spurs podcast.

Emerson, who joined Spurs from Barcelona in the summer of 2021, struggled to secure a regular starting position under manager Ange Postecoglou last season.

The 25-year-old full-back, who has two years remaining on his contract with the Lilywhites, has not been a primary choice for Tottenham’s backline.

He made 22 Premier League appearances, starting in only 11 of those games in the recent campaign.

Sheth confirmed that, despite ongoing rumours, there has been no official contact between AC Milan and Spurs regarding Emerson’s transfer.

While Milan’s interest is genuine and Emerson is open to the move, the crucial steps to finalize the deal have not yet been taken.

Sheth said:

“The speed of a potential deal will depend on what AC Milan do because the information I have as of the last few hours is that there’s been no official contact between the two clubs.

“Yes, there is interest and yes Emerson Royal would welcome a move to AC Milan, potentially there is a deal to be done, but the most important part of the deal hasn’t materialised yet.”

Tottenham are prepared to offload the Brazilian international and is open to entertaining offers for him during the ongoing summer transfer window. The club’s hierarchy has reportedly informed Emerson about his potential departure, allowing him to seek new opportunities.

The recent developments suggest that Emerson is not part of Spurs’ long-term plans, and the club is actively looking to facilitate his move away.

As the transfer window progresses, it remains to be seen whether AC Milan will formalize their interest and whether a deal can be reached that satisfies all parties involved.
