‘Keep an eye on’ – Alasdair Gold hints at a rather tough Spurs exit for ‘top’ player


Tottenham Hotspur are already receiving interest in right-back Emerson Royal ahead of the summer transfer window, writes the TIF.

This is what Spurs journalist Alasdair Gold has revealed on his latest YouTube video when covering the summer dealings expected at Hotspur Way.

Not even 12 months have passed since Spurs added the Brazilian to their squad after signing the 23-year-old from Barcelona in a deal believed to be worth around £25.8m.

Spurs are already being heavily linked with a potential replacement for Emerson, with Middlesbrough’s Djed Spence believed to be high up on Fabio Paratici’s list.

And with a possible replacement already lined up, Gold believes Spurs could quickly offload the 23-year-old, with interest already flooding in ahead of the window opening.

He said: “I think there’s been some interest from La Liga clubs, a couple of those, so maybe keep an eye on that. It’s tough on Emerson. Look, Emerson has been so much more improved in the last month of the season or so.

“Conte very much changed the system, jiggled it a little bit so that he was mainly focused on his defending and [Dejan] Kulusevski was providing all of the width in attack. But to be fair, that’s compromising Conte’s system.”
