Two days ago, journalist Gianluca Di Marzio stated Tottenham Hotspur defender Emerson Royal’s agent held ‘exploratory’ talks with AC Milan.

Gazzetta dello Sport on Thursday claim the Serie A side are set to appoint Paulo Fonseca as their new manager, and also focus on players they could sign in the summer window.

The Tottenham player has been identified as an option for the right-back position, but Milan have few concerns.

Gazzetta claim the Brazil international will occupy a non-EU slot in the squad, while it’s to be noted that the opposite was reported by Calciomercato on May 15th. They said he has a European passport and this was seen as an advantage for the Rossoneri.

The Italian club are focusing on other details, like Emerson working the wings, which suits Fonseca’s system. His deal lasts until 2026 and Tottenham value him at €30m.

It’s claimed Spurs have put a ‘Premier League’ price on the South American and Milan ‘want to avoid paying’ €30m for him. There’s belief the north London club could lower the request, probably towards the end of the window.

Lille’s Tiago Santos is also on Milan’s agenda and Gazzetta say the 21-year-old Portuguese will be a cheaper option than the Spurs fullback as he’s available for €10-12m.
