But he continues to be regularly linked with a move to the Premier League.Chelsea are looking for an alternative option to Reece James, who has had a number of injury problems in recent seasons. The England international is set for another month out following a recurrence of a knee problem.United are also looking for a right-back, with Aaron Wan-Bissaka out of favour until his recent return to the side in Diogo Dalot’s absence.

Inter would be willing to do business between £44.3million (€50m) and £53.1million (€60m).But Spurs may end up having the key to a deal. Barzaghi claims the north Londoners could be willing to offer Emerson Royal as part of the deal.Emerson would be a direct replacement for Dumfries at Inter, which could attract the Serie A club into a deal. Bayern Munich are also in contention and could offer Noussair Mazraoui in part exchange.Speaking on his YouTube channel, as relayed by FC Inter 1908, Barzaghi said: “Dumfries had a star turn in the World Cup, with goals and assists.

Tottenham is also on the player and could offer Emerson Royal.”Emerson had been a regular for Tottenham this season, having started 11 of the first 15 Premier League matches before the break for the World Cup. However, Matt Doherty has been preferred by Antonio Conte against both Brentford and Aston Villa upon the resumption.Djed Spence has been mostly left out in the cold by Conte since his summer arrival from Middlesbrough. The England under-21 international made a late appearance against Villa, as did Emerson.Want the latest Premier League news as we publish it on Express Sport?
