Tottenham preparing move for Emerson

Tottenham are reportedly keeping a close eye on many defenders across the Europe.

According to the football transfer rumours in British media, Tottenham are preparing move for Emerson.

Emerson has scored 3 goals and assisted 5 more across all competitions this season


The 21-year-old is considered to be one of the best defenders in Brazil. As a member of Brazil national football team, Emerson won one cap.


Emerson will be high in demand this summer, with him having enjoyed a sublime season for Real Betis this term.

José Mourinho wants to sign a new defender and Emerson is one of the names at the top of his wishlist. He has always been a manager who keeps his eyes on the most talented young players across the globe.

The Brazil international is thought to perfectly fit the profile of defensive player Mourinho wants to target in the summer transfer window.

Tottenham are in the market for just a handful of statement signings who can improve the first-team.

Emerson has the talent to play many roles in defense.

According to the report, “Tottenham are eyeing Real Betis defender Emerson. Mundo Deportivo reports the 21-year-old Emerson is wanted by Spurs boss Jose Mourinho. The South American initially joined the Nou Camp club in January 2019 from Atletico Mineiro in a deal worth around £11million. Both Barcelona and Real Betis agreed to pay half that figure each for the star. Each side co-own Emerson but he has played for Betis since, with Barca having an option to sign him permanently for £5m next year. So, in theory, the one-capped Brazil ace will move to the La Liga powerhouses at the end of next season. However, it has now emerged Spurs are ready to test the water and see whether they can convince Barca to cash-in.”


Barcelona are not in a position where they need to sell and would like to keep hold of the defender, but right offer may force the club to consider a deal.

Undoubtedly he would be a fantastic recruit for Tottenham.

Spurs fans would certainly love to see him arrive at the club.

It will be interesting to see whether Tottenham will make their move during the summer transfer window.
