As one of the strangest transfers of 2021 summer and definitely the most surprising item in

Tottenham transfer news

, the Brazilian right – back joined Tottenham for €25.00m from FC Barcelona. Why strange, you ask? That’s because

Barcelona

had signed with Emerson just earlier this summer!

Let’s get back a little: On 31 January 2019, the Brazilian side Atlético Mineiro announced the transfer of Royal to Barcelona, effective as of July 2019, for On 31 January 2019, Atlético announced the transfer of Royal to Barcelona, effective as of July 2019, for €12.7 million.

The deal consisted of a joint financial operation between Barcelona and fellow La Liga club Real Betis, in which each club paid half of the transfer fee and retained a percentage of Emerson's economic rights.

He was to become a

Real Betis

player in the July of 2019, with Barcelona holding the option of re-buying him for €9 million in the summer of 2021- which is when we are talking about. He joined Real Betis for the second half of 2018/19 season.

Overall, Emerson spent 2 and a half seasons at Real Betis, featuring in 79 games, scoring 5 goal and providing 10 assists. Barcelona re-signed him earlier this summer for €9.0 million, and even held a presentation for the 22 – year – old player.

And only a few weeks later, in the deadline day, Emerson is unexpectedly sold to the English side Tottenham Hotspur for €25.0 million with a 5 –year contract agreement between the player and the Whites of London.

Surely, Barca only agreed to this deal to help themselves solve the huge financial problems they have been trying to cope with ever since the pandemic. He seems to be having a crucial place in Tottenham’s 2021/22 squad, with respect to the departure of Serge Aurier.

Pape Sarr: from FC Metz to Tottenha Hotspur

Tottenham agreed on a 1 – year loan contract for the transfer of Atalanta’s 26 – yer old goal keeper. The reports say that 

Pierluigi Gollini

will sign on an initial loan with Spurs, with the deal becoming a permanent £13m transfer if he makes 20 appearances for the club this season.

Tottenham also reportedly have the option to extend the loan deal by 12 months. Pierluigi Gollini had spent 4 and a half season at Bergamo, and has been the club’s 1st choice player for the position of goal keeper for the last 3 seasons.

He had played in England before: in 2016, Gollini was an

Aston Villa

player and played for them in the Championship before making his move to Italy to play for Atalanta. The Italian man has featured in 112 games for Atalanta, conceded 120 goals, and managed to keep 38 clean sheets.

With Hugo Lloris being the No. 1 keeper in Tottenham, Gollini may be having some play times in the Europa Conference League, FC Cup, or English League Cup. But he definitely won’t give up without competing to start every single game. Gollini told reporters in Italy, "I am really happy. It's been difficult to leave a place that was like my family, a second home.

Thank you to Bergamo and all the supporters. I felt really loved. What we achieved is going to be in the history of the club. "It's a new experience. I am happy and grateful to Tottenham for this opportunity. I am looking forward to starting.

  • Date of birth: 27 April 1998 (age 23)

  • Place of birth: Córdoba, Argentina

  • Height: 1.85 m (6 ft 1 in)

The Argentinean center back is undoubtedly the biggest signing of Tottenham 2021 summer transfer. Not only was he one of the main

Tottenham transfer targets 2021

, he was also scouted by so many other prominent clubs.

Atalanta B.C. website announce that the player

Cristian Romero

has joined Tottenham Hotspur on loan for 1 year, with an option to make the move permanent. To clear up the situation, the agreement between Spurs and Atalanta is a season-long loan deal with an option - not obligation - to buy for £46.7m (€55.0 million).

The reports say that the player has agreed to a 5 – year contract with Tottenham starting date from the next season, which means if as the odds say the deal goes through next summer, the 23 – year – old defender could end up spending the next six years of his career at Tottenham Stadium and given his reputation as one of the most promising defenders in Europe, it is potentially some astute business from Managing Director of Football Fabio Paratici.

Romero was named 2020/21 Serie A’s Best Defender, and signing a player like that with a loan contract and avoid paying right away in this financial issues the COVID- 19 pandemic has brought about seems to be a super smart act from the British club.

Romero was playing for Atalanta in 2020/21 season on loan from Juventus, and they made the deal permanent for £16.m at the end of last season, and then the transfer to Tottenham happened. Moreover, he helped his country win the Copa America this summer after 28 years.

He is said to be one of the best signings all over the Europe with regard to today’s transfer fees, and we have to wait and see if the Whites can finally achieve a trophy with him being added to Tottenham’s 2021/22 squad.
