Barcelona defender Emerson Royal will undergo a medical with Tottenham Hotspur tomorrow ahead of a transfer before the window closes.

Football Insider claim that Tottenham have had a £25.7million bid accepted by the Catalan giants.

The Brazilian international has been given permission to discuss personal terms with the North Londoners and a deal is expected to be concluded before the deadline.

Sky Sports reported earlier today that agreeing personal terms with the 22-year-old are not expected to be an issue.

Emerson moved to Barcelona in 2019 from Atletico Mineiro and has been on loan at fellow La Liga outfit Real Betis for the past three seasons.

Tottenham have until midnight tomorrow to conclude their transfer dealings before the window closes and will reopen on January 1st.

Nuno Espirito Santo has decided to play Japhet Tanganga at right-back in all three of Tottenham’s opening Premier League matches of the new campaign ahead of Matt Doherty, while the club are still seeking a buyer for Serge Aurier, who has less than a year to run on his current contract (Football.London).

Barcelona’s financial problems look to have allowed Spurs to swoop in and sign a very highly-rated right-back.  

Emerson will add further competition to the back line, however, Spurs still need additions further up the field which could pose to be a problem due to Tanguy Ndombele’s current situation, where he is likely to remain at the club with no interested party expected to meet Daniel Levy’s valuation.
