TBR View: Barcelona's £21.5m asking price for Emerson proves transfer bargain for Arsenal
Amid reports, Arsenal are looking for a new right-back claims have emerged over a potential transfer for La Liga defender Emerson Royal.
Recent news has claimed the right-back is set to complete a move to the Nou Camp after his complicated transfer from 2019.
This may be good for the Gunners who could well be in the market for a new right-back.
Hector Bellerin’s future at the club is far from certain with claims he could move to Real Betis. Arsenal themselves are said to be open to his departure with the side keen on a move for Emerson.
With the recent financial crisis amid the Coronavirus pandemic, Arsenal will need to sell before they can buy this summer. Financial statements from March claimed the club almost £50m leaving question marks over their transfer activity.
A move at just £21.5m is a snip in the current market and would provide great quality at right-back.
He proved to be a great asset in the final third for Real Betis, providing four assists. It was exactly the amount Calum Chambers and Bellerin managed between themselves.
A new right-back is one of the most important pieces of recruitment this summer. The lack of quality in stark comparison to Kieran Tierney really is chalk and cheese.
At £21.5m, Emerson Royal is a transfer bargain for Arsenal, who are struggling financially. His quality and price is a great reason to chase the 22-year-old.
