Barcelona fullback Emerson Royal is upset seeing move to Everton blocked.

Mundo Deportivo says Barca have rejected an approach from the Blues for Emerson.

The defender spent last season with Real Betis and is on the radar of Everton football chief Marcel Brands.

Everton proposed a deal to take the defender on a two-year loan deal for ‘couple of million’ and include a ‘mandatory purchase option’ of €20m.

The Camp Nou side ‘said no’ to the Merseyside club’s offer due to an ‘economic issue’.

Barca are in urgent need of money and the proposals received for Emerson are not close enough to their demands.

It’s suggested the issue is ‘complicated’, while the player is ‘upset’ with the entire situation.
