Barcelona has turned down an offer from Arsenal to trade players, giving Tottenham a big boost.
Full-back for Barcelona Arsenal and Tottenham have both expressed interest in Emerson Royal.
According to sources, Barcelona has turned down an Arsenal cash-plus-player deal for full-back Emerson Royal, which would have brought Hector Bellerin back to the Catalan club. Tottenham, who are also interested in the Brazilian, will be encouraged by the news.
Royal is attracting a lot of attention from North London opponents. Both teams consider right-back as a position in need of improvement.
Calum Chambers and Cedric Soares have shared the role at Arsenal so far this season, while Japhet Tanganga has impressed in that position during Spurs’ strong start.
Following a poor start to the Premier League season, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta and sporting director Edu are eager to complete further moves on the final day of the transfer market.
Arteta’s team has failed to win a game, and their defensive performances have been atrocious, necessitating a transfer for a new defender.
Arsenal has launched an £8.5 million proposal for Royal, according to Spanish site RAC1, in a deal that would also see Bellerin return to Barca 10 years after leaving their la Masia club.
Under Arteta, Bellerin has fallen out of favor, and he has yet to start any of the team’s three Premier League games. The 26-year-progress old’s has been stalled by a series of major injuries in recent years, and various sources have claimed that he wants a fresh start elsewhere.
The LaLiga side, on the other hand, has rejected that offer and is demanding at least £17 million for Royal.
Arsenal and Adidas have unveiled their official 2021/22 home jersey, which is based on the club’s motto of “Arsenal for everyone.”
