Al Nassr looking to sign Tottenham Defender Emerson Royal


The Saudi Pro League club Al Nassr are looking to sign Tottenham Defender Emerson Royal. The Saudi Pro League has been tremendous in bringing European-based talent into the Middle East. SPL started the trend of signing Christiano Ronaldo back in 2023 in the January transfer window after Premier League giants Manchester United released the legend. 

The Brazilian was also approached by the Saudi club to play alongside Ronaldo in the SPL for a whooping €20 million offer. The 25-year-old joined the Spurs from Barcelona during the Summer transfer window 2021. Emerson could not hold a great impact at the Camp and he moved to England joining Tottenham Hotspur.
