A little over a week ago, Barcelona exercised their purchase option on Real Betis full-back Emerson, signing him for nine million euros, but they are believed to be looking for a quick profit and the player could be on the verge of joining Inter.
It is common knowledge that the Blaugrana are desperate to raise funds this summer and Emerson could be a useful asset in that regard.
According to SkySport in Italy, Emerson‘s agent is already in talks with Inter. The transfer fee is not yet known, but Real Betis would be entitled to 20 percent.
Inter are also operating efficiently, seeing in Emerson a replacement for Achraf Hakimi, whose exit seems inevitable although it not yet confirmed. The former Real Madrid right-back appears to be bound for Paris Saint-Germain, although there is also interest from Chelsea.
Barcelona, meanwhile, are well covered at right-back and need the money. Other players they will likely look to cash in on this summer as they look to raise funds include Junior Firpo, Samuel Umtiti, Philippe Coutinho, Matheus, Miralem Pjanic and Martin Braithwaite.
