Fabrizio Romano has now revealed that Emerson Royal has signed his contract with Tottenham Hotspur ahead of a transfer this summer.
The journalist revealed that a fee of €25m was reached between Spurs and Barcelona, with Emerson having already completed his medical.
This leaves Tottenham with four right-backs in North London, Japhet Tanganga, who has started the season well, Emerson, Serge Aurier and Matt Doherty.
Emerson himself gave a hint towards a possible deal earlier today when he followed the official Tottenham account on Instagram.
However, the Brazilian defender was allegedly left hurt by the transfer as he did not want to leave Barcelona this summer.
Sky Sports’ Kaveh Solhekol reported today that Emerson Royal preferred to join Tottenham over Arsenal despite the Gunners showing interest.

Spurs Web Opinion:
Tottenham’s transfer window really hinges on this transfer so I want to see it go through as soon as possible. With it, it has at least been a decent window. Without it, Spurs have left so many holes that needed filling.
