Tottenham could offer Emerson Royal in deal to sign Davide Frattesi

Tottenham might offer inconsistent full-back Emerson Royal in the deal to sign 24-year-old Inter Milan midfielder Davide Frattesi in the summer transfer window.

According to a report by Italian outlet Inter Live, Davide Frattesi is the subject of interest from Tottenham Hotspur. The North London giants are keen on signing a midfielder in the summer transfer window. And they are ready to offer Emerson Royal in the deal to sign the 24-year-old Inter Milan midfielder.

How has Davide Frattesi fared at Inter Milan?

Davide Frattesi has been a solid performer since joining Inter Milan on loan from Sassuolo last summer. The Italian international was one of the best midfielders in Serie A when he moved to San Siro. However, he was a backup option for the Nerazzurri throughout the 2023/24 season.

The 24-year-old managed only 1,555 minutes of game time in 42 appearances across all competitions. Frattesi contributed to 15 goals in his 42 outings, finding the back of the net eight times while providing seven assists. However, despite the player’s status as a backup player, he played his part in Inter Milan’s Serie A title triumph.

Meanwhile, the newly-crowned Serie A champions will complete a permanent move for Frattesi in the summer transfer window in a deal worth €29 million. However, the former Sassuolo midfielder’s spell at San Siro might end in the coming weeks, with Tottenham Hotspur keen on signing him. Other Premier League clubs have also shown interest in him in the last 12 months.

London calling?

Tottenham’s interest in Davide Frattesi is understandable. The North London club will likely part ways with Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg in the summer transfer window, with the Danish international keen on embarking on a new adventure. In addition, Giovani Lo Celso faces an uncertain future at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

So, it behoves Tottenham to invest in a central midfielder in the summer transfer window. Several candidates, including Conor Gallagher, have emerged on their radar, with Frattesi also a viable target. Tottenham might have hatched a winning ploy to land the 24-year-old, as they are considering offering Emerson Royal in the deal to sign him.

Tottenham might also offer an additional €30 million to sweeten the deal. Emerson Royal might be an attractive target for Inter Milan amid the Serie A champions’ eagerness to sign a right-back. So, a part-exchange deal might see the light of day in the coming weeks.
