Tottenham Hotspur could offer Emerson Royal in deal to sign English defender Fikayo Tomori from AC Milan.

According to a report from Calciomercatoweb, Fikayo Tomori is on the radar of Tottenham Hotspur. And they could look to make a move for the English defender at the end of the season by offering 24-year-old Brazilian right-back Emerson Royal.

It Is hardly a secret that Tottenham need to improve their central defensive options. And the English defender could prove to be a quality acquisition for them. Cristian Romero is currently the best defender at the club. And Antonio Conte needs to bring in a reliable partner for the Argentine international.

Tomori has proven himself to be one of the most reliable defenders in Serie A. And the opportunity to showcase his qualities again in England could be an attractive proposition for him. But it is unclear if a part-exchange deal will do the trick for Tottenham.

Meanwhile, the former Chelsea defender will be desperate to prove himself in the Premier League, and Tottenham could provide him with the opportunity to do so. Furthermore, Tomori could feel that a return to the Premier League could help him cement his place in the England national team as well.

The 25-year-old will feel that he has been overlooked by Gareth Southgate in recent months. And he did not start a single World Cup game for England despite outperforming players like Harry Maguire throughout last season.

He has the attributes to develop into a top-class Premier League defender. And Antonio Conte could help him improve further. Tomori has been linked with Real Madrid as well.

Tottenham need to improve their defence to challenge for major trophies. And Tomori could sort out their defensive unit for the foreseeable future. Conte has already plugged a major weakness by bringing in a quality full-back in Pedro Porro. And it remains to be seen whether the north London club can get a deal for Tomori across the line now.

Meanwhile, the report also adds that Tottenham could look to use Emerson Royal in a deal to sweeten the offer for AC Milan. It will be interesting to see if the Italian outfit are prepared to accept the 24-year-old Brazilian defender in a deal for Tomori.
