According to reports from La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Rossoneri are actively seeking to bolster their defensive lineup with the acquisition of a full-back. Presently, Emerson emerges as the prime contender for this role. Interestingly, Milan’s admiration for Emerson predates his tenure at Tottenham, with the club expressing interest even during his stint with Barcelona.

As Emerson prepares for a potential departure from Spurs in the upcoming transfer window, Milan views his versatile playing style as a perfect fit for their requirements. His ability to seamlessly operate on either flank adds a layer of strategic flexibility to Milan’s defensive setup.

However, negotiations may encounter a stumbling block in the form of Spurs’ valuation of the player. The North London club is reportedly seeking a fee in the vicinity of €30 million for Emerson’s services, a figure that Milan may need to carefully evaluate before proceeding with the transfer.
