Tottenham Hotspur is ready to win the Premier League 2021-2022 season. Well, at least this club has started outstandingly in the first three matches with 9 points. The team is ready to face other giant clubs like Manchester United, Manchester City, and many others.
However, Tottenham Hotspur seems to add some more players besides the existence of Harry Kane. It is reported that this club is about to sign Emerson Royal, the Barcelona defender. There has been an agreement of £25.7m fees for this Brazilian player.
Royal is now 22 years old. It joined Barcelona in January 2019. Unfortunately, he didn’t really give such an impression to the club. This was why he was spending about two and a half years at Real Betis on loan.
So far, he has made a total of three performances during the 2021-22 La Liga season. Ronald Koeman decided to put him on the core team. However, the club should remove some players due to the unstable financial situation. But still, Barcelona wants to hire Hector Bellerin, Arsenal’s defender, to replace Emerson. Bellerin has made 5 goals for Real Betis.
Besides, Royal seems very hard to compete with other players in the same position, Sergi Roberto and Sergino Dest. At the same time, Tottenham seems to be in great need of the defense. Barcelona has now accepted the £25.7m bid subsequent to rejecting the opportunity in swapping Royal for Serge Aurier.
But, it doesn’t mean that Tottenham doesn’t run after Aurier before the end of August. The team is enthusiastic about hiring this player, especially after the team’s rival Arsenal also wanted to sign Emerson.
Harry Kane Will Stay Longer at Tottenham Hotspur
There will never be any possibility for Harry Kane to move from the Spurs. His first start at the league was when the team won 1-0 over Watford. Regardless of the goal that is made by Son Heung-Min in the last three minutes prior to the end of halftime, Kane still performed very well.
Kane himself stated that he will stay at Tottenham this summer, regardless of the attempts of Manchester City to recruit him. However, Kane and other team players should make more improvements. The slight winning over Watford wasn’t really an impressive achievement. Watford is on the 12th rank in the third week of the Premier League.
While the North London rival, Arsenal will not be its main competitor, Hotspur still faces lots of challenges. This is particularly when the team will meet Manchester United on October 30, 2021. The Spurs managed to record a 1-0 victory against Manchester City on August 15, 2021. Of course, there should be more challenges in the coming weeks. Besides, all coaches have learned a lot about the Spurs’ overall tactics.
The Real Challenge for Nuno
The manager of Tottenham Hotspur, Nuno Espirito Santo stated that his team will need a long way to go. He also said that all players were ready to improve their performances. Consistency seems to be the main thing here because the road to victory is still a long way to go.
