Emerson Royal: Tottenham make bid for Barcelona right-back

Tottenham have made a bid worth £25.73m (€30m) for Barcelona right-back Emerson Royal.

If Barcelona opt to accept the bid, personal terms for the player are not expected to be a problem.

Spurs boss Nuno Espirito Santo is hoping to bolster his defensive options, having played Japhet Tanganga at right-back in the opening Premier League games with Serge Aurier now out of favour at the club.
