Spurs newcomer Emerson – 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.

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 recently took up.

Emerson was a regular for Manuel Pellegrini last season and helped Betis reach the Europa League, providing 10 assists in the process.
