Report: Inter Milan very interested in Tottenham defender Emerson Royal

Inter Milan are very interested in Emerson Royal as they consider potential replacements for Tottenham Hotspur target Denzel Dumfries, according to a report from Tuttomercatoweb.

Emerson is a player who largely baffles Spurs supporters. He has largely maintained the trust of Antonio Conte this season despite really struggling for form during the campaign.

The Brazilian is a solid defender. However, the wing-backs have, traditionally, been absolutely vital to the success of Conte’s preferred system going forward. And Emerson appears to offer very little in the final third.

Some of his decision-making is bizarre. And he only shown glimpses of real quality when it comes to crossing the ball or making things happen.

Nevertheless, he is a wanted man.

Tuttomercatoweb reports that Inter are considering potential replacements for Dumfries. Chelsea are looking at the Dutchman, who is valued at around £34.5 million, ahead of next summer.

And with that, one of the names at the very top of their wishlist is Emerson.

Of course, Inter’s interest in Emerson is particularly interesting given reports on Dumfries this week. Reports from 90min claimed that Spurs had actually made an enquiry about the 26-year-old.

So there is obviously an opportunity there. Fabio Paratici has done some excellent business when it comes to bringing players in from Italy since he arrived in North London.

And he will have surely given some thought to the idea of swapping Dumfries for Emerson in one of the coming windows.

Emerson has the potential to be an ‘amazing‘ player. But Spurs simply have not seen that since his £26 million move. And it appears that he simply does not suit the club’s style.

So if they can use him to land Dumfries, that is an opportunity too good to turn down.
