According to a recent report by Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona are willing to cash in on Emerson, who is currently enjoying a two-year loan spell with Real Betis. It is believed that there has been recent interest from Borussia Dortmund, Everton and Newcastle United in recruiting the talented full-back, which could see the Catalans change their stance on the player’s future this summer (via Mundo Deportivo).
Emerson’s Incredible Loan Spell At Andalusia This Season
Emerson has enjoyed an impressive season at the Estadio Benito Villamarín after producing a series of productive displays on the right side of Alexis Trujillo’s defence. He has scored three goals and grabbed five assists in 30 appearances for the Spanish outfit this term in all competitions which showcase his growing influence in the attacking third.
The 21-year-old has been an all-round performer for Betis this season based on his average of 2.2 tackles, 1.0 interceptions, 1.5 clearances, 0.9 shots, 0.8 key passes and 0.6 crosses per 90 minutes in La Liga so far. However, he has been a bit sloppy with his ball-distribution after completing 78.2% of his attempted passes in league football (stats via whoscored).
Emerson has so far earned one senior cap for the Brazilian national team when he came on as an impact substitute against South Korea in a friendly match back in November last year. Maybe a permanent switch away from the Nou Camp could give him a chance to secure even more first-team football for both club and country in the years to come.
What Are The Brazilian Full-Back’s Best Attributes?
Emerson can use his pace and acceleration to cause a lot of headaches for the opposition down the right flank. He is a tough-tackling defender who is always willing to commit to the cause and help his team by making some crucial interceptions and last-gasp clearances at the back. The Brazilian is also a decent crosser of the ball and is not shy of unleashing a long-range shot if given time and space by the opponent.
Are The Catalan Giants Making The Right Call By Sanctioning Emerson’s Permanent Departure?
Emerson is far from a finished product but has the potential to become a world-class player in his position someday. Therefore, Barca should reconsider their stance on sanctioning the South American youngster’s permanent departure this summer. It seems like they are making a rushed decision rather than a calculated one.
The Catalans will be better of letting him spend more time on loan at Betis before deciding on his long-term future at the Nou Camp next summer. It’s high time that the La Liga giants started to build for the future. Emerson is a promising player who is destined to have a very bright future in European football, so the Catalans should consider keeping him at the club for the long-run.
