AC Milan and Tottenham close to deal?

As the makeover of the North London club continues in Postecoglou's second summer, some players will likely leave Spurs for a better opportunity. It now only seems like a matter of time until right-back Emerson Royal will be considered a former Spurs player rather than a current one.

As Milan enters a new era with the legendary attacker Zlatan Ibrahimovic as a part of the board of directors, they will also look to remake their squad. Royal has been high on their list for a while now. As good of a player as he is, the Brazilian just isn't the best fit for Big Ange's system. A fee between 18-20 million euros seems like it will allow Royal to depart to the Italian club. This scenario seems like the best fit for all parties, and despite his ups and downs, the veteran right-back will be missed in North London. Truth Meter: 8/10.
