Barcelona continues to explore options to strengthen their squad amid financial difficulties. It is believed that the Catalan club is primarily considering loan options, with the intention to purchase new players only after selling their current ones.

Previously, it was reported that Barcelona is interested in re-loaning João Félix from Atlético Madrid. Another player the Blaugrana is keen to re-loan is Manchester City defender João Cancelo.

However, the English club prioritizes selling the Portuguese defender, which could attract interest from other clubs. This could leave Barcelona without their desired right-back, prompting them to consider alternative options.

According to CaughtOffside, Barcelona's sporting director Deco has identified a potential alternative in former club player Emerson Royal. The Brazilian moved to Tottenham in 2021 for €25 million, signing a contract until 2026, but he has struggled to secure a spot in the starting lineup.

In addition to Barcelona, AC Milan is also interested in the Brazilian, but their €14 million offer was rejected by Spurs. The Italian club is expected to make another offer to the London club soon.

Emerson Royal is highly likely to leave Tottenham this transfer window, but his next club remains uncertain. It is unlikely that Barcelona will be willing to pay around €20 million for the player, but they are expected to propose a one-year loan deal to the English club. It is worth noting that the right-back position at Barcelona is currently held by Jules Koundé, with Héctor Fort and Julián Araujo as alternatives.
