AC Milan set for fresh talks to sign Emerson Royal

AC Milan and Tottenham Hotspur will reportedly have a new meeting this week to discuss 25-year-old Brazilian full-back Emerson Royal.

According to reputed Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, Emerson Royal is the subject of interest from AC Milan. The Serie A giants have been scouring the market for a right-back heading into the summer transfer window. And they will hold fresh talks with Tottenham Hotspur for the 25-year-old utility man on Wednesday or Thursday.

Emerson Royal and his Tottenham travails

Emerson Royal has endured a topsy-turvy ride since joining Tottenham Hotspur from Barcelona in August 2021. The Brazilian international moved to the North London club after a successful stint with Real Betis, meaning there was a lot of hype and fanfare surrounding him when he arrived at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

The 25-year-old full-back has turned out over 100 times thus far for Tottenham, chipping in with four goals and two assists. The former Real Betis defender has been a utility man for Tottenham due to his ability to play as a centre-back and a full-back on both flanks. However, he has been the backup right-back for the North London club since Pedro Porro arrived from Sporting CP last year.

So, it is hardly surprising that Emerson’s long-term future at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is uncertain. The Brazilian defender is ready to take a pay cut to leave the North London club. And he does not have a shortage of suitors, with AC Milan among the prospective suitors in the summer transfer window.

Serie A move on the horizon?

AC Milan’s interest in Emerson Royal is understandable. The Serie A giants have been scouring the market for a right-back heading into the summer transfer window, even though Davide Calabria is the club captain. However, the experienced full-back has blown hot and cold in the last few seasons.

So, it behoves AC Milan to invest in a right-back, with Emerson’s name featuring on the wishlist at San Siro. And the Rossoneri will have a meeting with Tottenham to discuss the 25-year-old utility man, with the North London club eager to know how much the Serie A outfit will be willing to pay to secure his services.

The upcoming meeting will be on Wednesday or Thursday, and it will be interesting to see how the talks progress between Tottenham and AC Milan.
