Tottenham Hotspur appear to be nearing a move for Barcelona right back Emerson Royal – and he has dropped something of a hint that the deal is on.

Tottenham have been chasing a new right back of late, with neither Serge Aurier or Matt Doherty seemingly to the liking of Nuno Espirito Santo or Fabio Paratici.

Japhet Tanganga has started the season well in that role, but Paratici has been working hard to bring a new attack-minded right back in too.

Barcelona’s Emerson has been the top target, despite the fact that he only joined Barcelona from Real Betis this summer.

The Brazilian hasn’t started the season as Barca’s first-choice right back, and that seemingly gave Tottenham major hope of a deal.

Now, Fabrizio Romano claims that all the terms have been agreed and the medical has been completed, with a €30million (£26million) deal done.

The 22-year-old impressed with Betis and now looks set for England – especially after seeing his Instagram activity today.

Tottenham fans have spotted that Emerson has just started following Tottenham’s official Instagram account, pointing towards a move.

Tottenham are Emerson’s most recent follow, and fans believe that is a hint that the deal is imminent.

It looks like Emerson will be a Tottenham player by the end of the day, and keep tabs on his Instagram for a photo of him in a Spurs shirt.
