Report: Tottenham defender emerges as AC Milan’s top summer target 

According to Gazzetta dello Sport journalist Luca Bianchin has revealed that AC Milan are prioritising a move for Tottenham right-back Emerson Royal this summer.

Ange Postecoglou has made it clear that significant changes will be made to the squad this summer, with many first-team players set to be replaced by others who are better suited to his system (Guardian).

One of the players expected to be offloaded is Emerson, with various outlets revealing over the last few weeks that the Lilywhites are ready to listen to offers for the Brazilian (Football Insider).

AC Milan enter the race for Emerson Royal

Bianchin has now said on social media that a move to Serie A could be on the cards for the Tottenham man, with Milan keen on securing his services.

In fact, it is alleged that Emerson ‘is the first name’ on the wishlist for Stefano Pioli’s side as they aim to strengthen at right-back.

However, the report adds that Spurs are asking for €30m (£25.8m) for the former Real Betis man, which is a bit of a stumbling block for the Rossoneri.

We already know that Saudi clubs have shown interest in Emerson in the past and there will likely be a few Italian and Spanish sides also lining up to sign the Brazilian. 

Tottenham would be hoping that a bidding war ensues for the 25-year-old so that they can get back what they paid for the right-back three years ago.
