New Tottenham signing Emerson Royal has posted a message expressing his excitement on social media ahead of his imminent arrival in London.

Spurs concluded their transfer business this summer with the signing of Emerson from Barcelona on deadline day.

The Brazilian right-back joined the club in a deal worth around £26 million, and proved to be football director Fabio Paratici’s lone signing on the final day of the transfer window. 

The 22-year-old joins to provide serious competition to the likes of Japhet Tanganga and Matt Doherty, who have been rotated by Nuno Espirito Santo during Spurs’ opening Premier League and Europa Conference League fixtures. 

Spurs also saw right-back Serge Aurier depart the club on deadline day, after reaching an agreement to mutually terminate the Ivorian’s contract. 

Emerson could potentially make his Spurs debut following the international break when Nuno’s side travel to Crystal Palace on Saturday (September 11), and has shown his excitement by posting a tweet tagging the club’s official Twitter account.

Spurs Web Opinion 

Emerson is a signing that should add a different dynamic to what Spurs currently have at their disposal in that part of the pitch. From his posts on social media over the last few days, he seems very keen to get going under Nuno to carry on what has been a positive start to the season. 

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. In competition with Matt Doherty? Seriously? I would pick something from my wife’s stuffed animal collection to play over Doherty, and STILL bet that would do a better job!
