Report: Personal terms agreed as Tottenham player instructs agent to finalise the transfer

By Mehdi Gokal -

Tottenham defender Emerson Royal is close to completing a move to AC Milan, with recent reports suggesting that personal terms have been agreed.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, the Brazilian right-back has made substantial progress towards joining the Italian club. Emerson has apparently instructed his agent to finalise the transfer.

The deal reportedly includes a five-year contract worth €3 million annually. Spurs, who signed Emerson for €25 million from Barcelona in the summer of 2021, are asking for the same fee.

However, Milan are aiming to close the deal for around €18-20 million, including bonuses, which aligns with the player’s current market value.

Last season, Emerson filled various roles across the backline due to injuries within the squad. Despite these contributions, he struggled to secure a regular starting position under manager Ange Postecoglou.

The former Real Betis defender made 22 Premier League appearances last season, starting only 11 games.

With two years remaining on his contract, which runs until June 2026, Tottenham are open to offers for the right-back. The club’s hierarchy has previously informed Emerson of their intention to allow him to seek new opportunities during this transfer window.

The potential move to AC Milan offers a fresh start for Emerson, who has found it challenging to establish a consistent role at Spurs.

This transfer would be a significant step in Tottenham’s efforts to reshape their squad for the upcoming season. The potential transfer fee would provide the club with additional funds to facilitate purchases and strengthen the team across other positions.
