​Atletico Madrid prepare fresh move for Tottenham right-back Emerson Royal

Atletico Madrid are the club showing the keenest interest in Emerson Royal.

The Tottenham full-back is available for a transfer this summer, a year after arriving from Barcelona.

Royal has failed to impress Spurs boss Antonio Conte, who is hoping to sign Djed Spence and possibly another right wing-back this summer.

According to the Daily Mail, Atleti are offering Emerson a route back to La Liga, but a deal is not certain.

Atleti want an initial loan with an option to buy, while Spurs would want a direct sale or an obligation to buy in any loan deal.

Royal lost his place to Matt Doherty near the end of last season, as Spurs secured a top four finish in the Premier League.
