Medical underway: Tottenham set to seal £25m deal on deadline day

Tottenham have had a really good transfer window. 

All things considered, the club must be delighted at keeping hold of Harry Kane, tying down Heung-Min Son and strengthening in areas across the pitch. 

And now we are at deadline day and the new arrivals will not stop here. 

We brought you the news yesterday that Tottenham had agreed a £25million fee with Barcelona to sign Emerson Royal

The defender is currently undergoing his medical in Barcelona ahead of signing for Spurs today according to the Daily Mail

Unlike many modern-day full-backs, Emerson stands at nearly 6ft tall, whilst still possessing exceptional physical attributes which help him play the role so well. 

Physicality is always an attribute welcome for players entering the Premier League as many players from La Liga have previously struggled with this part of the game. 

Emerson should provide a real upgrade to the starting eleven for Spurs, as both Aurier and Doherty have previously struggled to nail down a starting spot at the club.

Emerson has started the season as Barcelona’s first choice right-back ahead of Sergino Dest.

A club insider told Fresh Spurs that Barcelona did not want to sell Emerson, but given their poor financial situation, they felt Tottenham’s bid of 30million euros was impossible to turn down.
