Looking good. Having Lucas will help Emerson settle in, especially as they’ll play on the same wing.— Tony Silver (@TonySilverIFA) September 8, 2021
At this rate he starts!— Darren Fox (@MrDarrenFox) September 8, 2021
The full-back will now hope to be a part of Nuno Espirito Santo’s squad for Saturday’s Premier League trip to Crystal Palace.
Emerson Royal – the story so far
Emerson was born in Sao Paulo in 1999 and played for several clubs at youth level before coming through the ranks at Porte Preta in 2016.
He made his debut in 2017 and, the following year, joined Brazilian giants Atletico Mineiro, making 23 league appearances.
Emerson was on the move again in 2018 when Barcelona came calling.
As part of a joint deal between Barca and Real Betis, the 22-year-old would play for the latter club first, for two seasons.
The Blaugrana held the option of buying him outright for €6million (around £5.2million) in 2021, which they took up.
