AC Milan are continuing to probe the ground for Barcelona right-back Emerson, a report claims, though the asking price is high.
According to Calciomercato.com, the Rossoneri are still in contact with the agency that takes care of the 21-year-old, who is currently on two-year loan at Real Betis until 2021.
He is a profile very welcome by Milan who have followed him constantly throughout the season and are in need of a solution to their right-back problem given the lack of consistency from both Calabria and Conti.
n recent days , Milan contacted Barcelona for more detailed information on the situation of Emerson, but at the moment the Catalan side are asking for €30million – too high for the management.
This is largely because – in the event of early termination of the loan – Barcelona would have to pay a penalty of around €9m to Betis, who have already budgeted for his farewell during the summer.
Newcastle, Benfica, Bayer Leverkusen and Tottenham are also on the talented Brazilian, and while Emerson remains one of the first names on the list for Milan – together with Denzel Dumfries of PSV – it must be understood if the asking price can be dropped.
