Arsenal, Tottenham lining up move for Real Betis fullback Emerson Royal

Arsenal are lining up a move for Real Betis fullback Emerson Royal.

Radio Castellon says the Gunners are weighing up a summer swoop for the 22-year-old.

However signing Emerson would probe to be tricky, with the player co-owned by both Real Betis and Barcelona.

The two LaLiga sides paid £5.1million each in 2019 to sign the Brazil international from Atletico Mineiro, with Emerson spending the last two years at Betis.

But he will finally head to the Nou Camp at the end of June with the Blaugrana to fork out an additional £2.5m.

As well as Arsenal, it has been claimed that Tottenham, Bayern Munich, Paris Saint-Germain, AC Milan and Villarreal are all keen on signing him.

Barcelona could be tempted to offload Emerson as they already have Sergino Dest and Sergi Roberto to rely on.
