Barcelona prepared to SELL Emerson as Prem quartet in contact

Barcelona are prepared to SELL Emerson this summer.

Outstanding this season with Real Betis, the fullback is technically registered with Barca.

It was expected Barca would trigger their option to sign Emerson halfway through his two-season Betis deal.

However, Sport says interest from England has Barca's board now leaning towards selling the Brazilian for an instant profit.

Barca paid €6m to sign Emerson in co-ownership with Betis and must pay another €6m to take him this summer.

And it's claimed if an offer of €20m or more arrives, the Catalans will immediately sell.

West Ham, Newcastle, Everton and Tottenham have already asked about the wing-back.
