Everton bid for Barcelona's Emerson rejected

Tuesday, 01 September 2020 33comments  |  Jump to last

Some reports are claiming that Everton have had an offer rejected for Barcelona right-back Emerson.

The 21-year-old is currently on loan at Real Betis until next summer, where he has played 41 times in all competitions.

Emerson, who has one cap for Brazil, made his name in his home country with Ponte Preta and Atletico Mineiro before being signed by Barcelona in 2019.

Yes, I heard about that but not sure if it was a loan, loan to buy, or outright purchase. This guy has openly said (allegedly) that his aim is to be better than Cafu.

I do hope that something happens later as we seem to be going very Brazilian/South American, in this Transfer Market. It also goes to show that he wants to address the right-back slot, and presumably having run the rule over Jonjoe Kenny on his return, does not see him being a part of it.

I think this would be a loan, but Barcelona may want to sell? I can’t see how these numbers are adding up otherwise.

I think Spurs and a few others are watching this player, but our Latin American influenced squad will help us. It is becoming clear that Jonjoe Kenny will be sold or heading back to Schalke, and that Carlo wants a different right back.

We have not signed anyone yet but if we get these 6 players on board we will be a completely transformed outfit next season.

Allan, Rodriguez, Doucouré, Emerson, Romero. [Moise wants to go back to Italy and we've inquired about Odsonne Eduard.]

How high can we go IF those six gel with our current best players?

Top 6 challengers for sure... higher than that? Leicester came pretty close to Champions League qualification last season, so dare to dream.

Hate to be a spoilsport but, until I see these “targets” with an Everton shirt on, I'm not holding my breath.

Right back looks an area of weakness with Coleman getting on, only Kenny behind him and no real youngster threatening to break through - Kyle John played further forward not his usual RB against Blackpool. Maybe they’ll go for the RB equivalent of Nkounkou and concentrate our spending on midfield.

Matt Doherty to Spurs for €15m seems like a bargain to me. He’s succeeding Seamie in the Irish team, I’d have been happy if he was doing the same at Everton. Don’t remember us ever being linked to him. Surprised Wolves let him go, certainly at that price.

Colin@4, or should I say Glasstrodamus, I thought you would have seen a more positive future for us in that murky crystal ball.

Like you say until they're seen either in a chippy, near Finch Farm or GP, or having a photo session with the shirt or the tea-lady, nothing can be taken as completed.

Still, looking positive on all fronts as it is though. I'm sure that Usmanov will become more involved publicly sooner or later, with a possible cash injection.

This would be a great signing for the club and the one I want most to happen. If ever a full back was suited to the demands of the Premier League it's this lad. He's built like a shithouse and is a powerful runner hence the comparisons to Cafu though he's a totally different type as he doesn't mind a tackle.

Derek, I am sure it was James Rodriguez in front of me yesterday, queuing up in for a sausage dinner.

I was looking up what is popular in Brazil eating out, these Churrascarias restaurants sound like it is worth a trip out there.

Picanha. Barbecuing meat is something the Brazilians do very well. Churrascarias are specific barbecue restaurants which can now be found all over Brazil, but the tradition comes from the Gauchoculture of the south, where cowboys would cook meats skewered on metal spits over hot coals, seasoned simply with rock salt. The prime cut of meat now associated with this style of cooking is picanha – the top part of sirloin steak. This has a thick layer of fat which ensures the charred, smoky meat just melts in the mouth.

Would love this to be true. And to happen. As others have said, I still feel that right-back is an area of concern. Seamus is not what he was and I'm not convinced Kenny has the dynamism we need.

To make full use of Rodriguez potentially playing right flank, we need a fast and fit right-back able to overlap and then also get back rapidly.

This lad looks to tick a lot of boxes and a loan with purchase option could be ideal.

I read yesterday that Real Betis and the player were each fuming at Barca's rejection of our advances because Betis own 50% and Barca own 50% of the player each but Barca blocked the sale. Does anyone know if this is accurate?

I also plan on being better than Cafu.

Tony @9, you must have been in the wrong chippy!

He's Colombian! Whatever he orders, I sincerely hope there's no coke with it! :-)

Derek 7, Usmanov won't make his move until Kenwright's out of the picture. He was going to use some strong arm tactics to remove boys pen billy but Kenwright brought some theatre types in as bodyguards. It's like a Mexican standoff right now.

I think we'll end up getting Allan, James, Doucouré and possibly Zaha – watch this space!

Eric @ 17. It's amazing how quickly Barca and Real Madrid players acquire EU passports.

Are we just desperate for South American players or do other nations get a look in?

Plenty of good talent in the British and Irish lower leagues.

Sorry about my disjointed post, I was thinking of Emerson and the Brazilian lads. I knew he was Colombian, honest!

By the way it was definitely him in the chippy, sausage dinner with a steak and kidney pudding on top he ordered. That 'I'm ready' six-pack of his will be down to a 1 [big] pack soon.

Andrew Ellams
21 Posted 01/09/2020 at 16:47:54
Justin, are you suggesting we could do better than players like Allan and Rodrigues in the lower leagues?
Brian Wilkinson
22 Posted 01/09/2020 at 17:02:27
Colin @15, I think you could be right with all those players.

What I can see happening is The Messi fiasco Ending up with Barca going in for Richarlison, and let's be honest, if an offer comes close to the £143 Million, I can See Everton taking the money to rebuild.

I like Richarlison, but £100 million Plus bid would be hard to turn down, anyway all pure speculation on my side. But again, if Messi does end up leaving, they will want to bring in a big name and if so, we should screw Koeman and take him to the cleaners for the £143 Million.

It just shows you the great player the original Emerson (Emerson Ferreira da Rosa) was, because when that name comes up it immediately equates with a quality footballer. Maybe there was even a better one before that.

Brands is still pursuing buying in youth as part of his youth development strategy, which looks like where future progress at Everton lies.

Tony Everan
24 Posted 01/09/2020 at 18:08:17
I think Barcelona may do business, but with some kind of buy back clause, like they did for Gerry Deulofeu. It is sounding like he is a player they rate highly and don't want to fully lose influence over.

Interesting Brian £120 million and the fullback? It makes a lot of sense if we can get the Celtic centre forward in as well!

So no Zone signing, average players are being given extended contracts to try and inject some sort of feel good factor. We've missed out on our number one target that we have been pursuing for 6 months that will no doubt go on to be brilliant.

We still haven't offloaded any of the fringe dross we have – never mind the first-team dross and we are being linked with fancy-sounding named foreigners that we won't sign.

I'll be amazed if Ancelotti hasn't walked before Christmas with the shower of shit we have running the club.

Gary, Not true, the womens team have been signing several players. 😂

Brian@22, it's only fair if the above scenario does come into fruition, after all said and done, Koeman in his tenure, did more damage than the Luftwaffe in WW2 to Everton Football Club!
Carl Manning
29 Posted 01/09/2020 at 22:13:33
Richarlison will not be the big name to replace Messi if he leaves Barca! Jesus wept...
Brian Wilkinson
30 Posted 01/09/2020 at 22:41:19
Tony @25, we could bring the Celtic forward in, have the three midfielders we are chasing, Zaha in place of Richarlison, a new right back and goalkeeper and still have change out of the Richarlison sale, without the worry of the FFP.
Kieran Kinsella
31 Posted 01/09/2020 at 22:48:05
If Messi leaves Barce, it seems contingent on him proving his free transfer clause is still valid – in which case, no fee for Barce. They've already said they have no money so I can't see them spending big on Richarlison or anyone else.

Off-topic but happy to see a Blue alum doing well... Tyias Browning remains the defensive mainstay for Guangzhou Evergrande, again dominating the Chinese Super League.

Evergrande is so successful that the city of Guangzhou is building the world's biggest football stadium (in a lotus flower shape) that will seat 100,000, bigger than Camp Nou, at a cost of $1.7 billion. Big stage for Tyias, our Academy alumnus and onetime U-21 player of the year.
