Emerson’s Tottenham shirt number revealed after Spurs confirm signing

Tottenham have officially confirmed the signing of Emerson Royal from FC Barcelona on Tuesday evening.

Spurs linked with Emerson

Emerson would be signed by Barcelona back in January of 2019 before then selling him to fellow Spanish side, Real Betis.

Barca then bought the defender back earlier this summer for a fee believed to be around £8m.

Emerson had since featured in all three of Barcelona’s league ties so far this term, but he would be linked with a move to Spurs earlier today, with a transfer fee of €25m touted by Fabrizio Romano:

And now, as mentioned above, the Lilywhites have officially announced the signing of the Brazilian full-back:

Emerson, as per Spurs, has signed a deal until 2026 and will wear the number 12 shirt.

They add that the defender will travel to London from Spain later this week.

Emerson’s arrival now means that Spurs have four players competing for the right-back spot, with Serge Aurier, Matt Doherty and Japhet Tanganga already at the club.

Despite this, it is believed that Aurier will be staying at the club beyond deadline day as a move for the Ivorian could not be found:
