Fans are in disbelief as Tottenham announced the leave of their star player who was signed last 2-season ago

Tottenham Hotspur may have just received a transfer boost as they bid to offload a host of first-team players this summer.

Spurs have already made admirable progress on that front, having offloaded Tanguy Ndombele, Japhet Tanganga, Ryan Sessegnon, Eric Dier and Ivan Perisic on free transfers last month.
Joe Rodon followed the quintet out the door last week as he completed a £10 million switch to Leeds United, with Archie Gray heading to Spurs for £40 million.

However, there remains plenty at Spurs facing uncertain futures as Ange Postecoglou goes about building a side in his image.

Emerson Royal certainly falls into that camp and has been heavily linked with a switch to AC Milan in recent weeks. The Serie A giants are hoping to tie up a deal for Royal this week as they remain locked in talks with Tottenham.
But Milan could now face added competition for the full-back’s signature and according to journalist Ben Jacobs, it may help Spurs drive up his price tag.
Saudi club enter race to sign Emerson Royal

Speaking on Playback, Jacobs shared the latest on Royal’s future and claimed a new club has entered the race to sign the Spurs defender.

“That one [Royal to Milan] is a possibility,” the journalist said. “I’m also told that Al-Nassr have entered the race for Emerson as well.

“That will, I imagine, allow Tottenham to get the price they are looking for.”
Royal may snub Saudi move

Despite interest from Al-Nassr, Royal seems to have his heart set on a move to the San Siro. The £26 million defender has spoken openly about the interest from the Serie A giants, admitting his pride at Milan’s interest.

“Yes, I know Milan asked Spurs about me. I’m proud of that, Milan is an important club. Let’s see what happens with Milan, I’m just happy to know that they are showing interest in me,” he said.

While the 25-year-old is likely to prefer a move to Milan over a switch to the Middle East, this can only be positive news for Spurs.

With another side interested in signing Royal, it should allow Tottenham to convince Milan to step up their bid for the Brazilian.

The Serie giants’ latest offer is thought to be worth around £13 million, with the Lilywhite holding out for £17 million.
