'I'm begging you Don Fabio': Some Spurs fans pray club can complete £25m deal for Emerson soon

Spurs are reportedly close to agreeing a deal with FC Barcelona for right-back Emerson Royal.

According to Fabrizio Romano, the north London club could soon reach an agreement with the Catalan giants for the defender. As per the Sky Sports Italia reporter, the fee could reach as high as €30m (£25m).

And in social media. Tottenham fans are begging that the club can wrap up a deal for the defender quickly. Whilst an agreement is close, nothing is finalised just yet.
