Tottenham Hotspur are closing in on the signing of Emerson Royal and their business may not be finished just yet…
According to talkSPORT transfer expert Alex Crook, the north London outfit are pushing for more additions on deadline day and they are confident in making at least one signing, which is likely to be the Barcelona right-back.
“#THFC confident of making at least one signing today (Emerson Royal) but I’m told they are pushing for more,” he tweeted.
It’s thought that the Brazilian is undergoing a medical ahead of a €30m (£25.7m) move to the Lilywhites, whilst there remains an interest in Wolves attacker Adama Traore, per Sky Sports.
This latest development should leave many supporters around the Tottenham Hotspur absolutely buzzing as it means Fabio Paratici and co are eyeing up further moves to complete their impressive summer of arrivals.
In Cristian Romero, they have a centre-back fix, though Eric Dier and Davinson Sanchez have started the campaign in impressive form, whilst the signing of Bryan Gil is certainly one for the future and one that could see some much-needed creativity added to attacking midfield.
Pape Sarr has been another addition but we’ll have to wait at least a year to see him in action.
The Italian supremo has been working hard for further arrivals and he seems to be on the verge of sealing Nuno Santo a new right-back, another problematic area in recent times.
Serge Aurier has slipped down the pecking order in N17, whilst Matt Doherty hasn’t been favoured either, with youth product Japhet Tanganga starting all three of their Premier League matches thus far.
A striker may be the next priority as the Portuguese head coach would reportedly like to deploy a two-man attack and Harry Kane is his only senior option right now.
There are less than 12 hours to go in the window but as Crook has revealed, we should expect some sort of activity from Spurs and that will surely leave much of the Lilywhites faithful thrilled.
They head into the international break top of the Premier League and it’s clear that they aren’t resting on their laurels as Paratici and Nuno look to bolster the playing squad even more.
