Tottenham have completed the signing of right-back Emerson Royal from Barcelona.
Emerson has signed a contract until 2026 and will wear the No 12 shirt at Spurs.
A Spurs statement read: “We are delighted to announce the signing of Emerson Royal from Barcelona, subject to international clearance and a work permit.
The right-back has signed a contract with us until 2026 and will wear the number 12 shirt. Emerson will travel to London from Spain later this week.”
Sky Sports News reported on Monday that a bid worth £25.73m (€30m) was made for the right-back, which was later accepted by the Spanish club, with personal terms also agreed.
Arsenal were keen on signing Emerson, but the 22-year-old instead wanted a move to Spurs.
Brazilian Emerson joined Barcelona in 2019 from Atletico Mineiro. He then moved to Real Betis, but returned to the Nou Camp this summer when Barcelona exercised a buy-back clause.
