Tottenham fans react as club reportedly open talks to sign Barcelona’s Emerson

Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly opened talks to sign Barcelona defender Emerson as the Brazilian continues to shine on loan at Manuel Pellegrini’s Real Betis – and Spurs fans have reacted on Twitter.

Emerson, 21, only joined Barcelona from Brazilian side Atletico Mineiro last summer for a fee believed to be in the region of £10million. A day after joining Barcelona, he was sent on loan to Real Betis for two seasons.

In his first campaign, the right-back has impressed and gained plenty of plaudits for his performances in La Liga. Clocking up 41 outings in all competitions, Emerson has had a hand in nine goals.

He remains on loan at Betis under former West Ham and Manchester City boss Pellegrini for another season, but that loan may not last as long as the summer of 2021. That is because Tottenham, among other sides, are keen.

Diario De Sevilla claim Tottenham, PSG and AC Milan have all asked about Barcelona about the right-sided defender. Milan, of course, are closing in on the signing of Serge Aurier from Spurs – as per to Gianluca Di Marzio.

Tottenham supporters have reacted on Twitter to the reported news that Spurs have asked Barcelona about the one-time Brazil international – who has been compared to Dani Alves by Spanish newspaper Marca.
