Roma head coach Jose Mourinho is interested in signing right-back Emerson Royal this transfer window.
According to the Daily Express, Atletico Madrid has made a formal offer to Spurs for the Brazilian. However, the daily tabloid also reported that in addition to Atletico, the current European Conference League winners are also in the race.
Emerson Royal is highly regarded by Antonio Conte, and the Italian does not want to lose him.
However, the signing of Djed Spence from Middlesbrough, along with the revived form of Matt Doherty, will significantly boost competition in the right-back position.
During last season, former Tottenham defender Graham Roberts called some of the Brazilian’s performances “incredible”, but clarified that the 23-year-old defender lacked consistency during the entire length of the campaign.
Thus, the player has to decide his own future as N17. Antonio Conte does not want to let the young player go, and it seems that the Brazilian himself is not sure of the right move (as of now).
