Barcelona signed the 22 year old from Athletico Miniero in July 2019, for €12.7M, the deal consisted of a joint financial operation between Barcelona and Real Betis.
Emerson has made 61 league apps for Betis and recorded 4 goals, 10 assists. He will be eligible to join the Catalan giants at the end of the season should Laporta decide to trigger the clause that will bring him back to the Club.
Since the departure of first choice right back Nelson Semedo to wolves last summer, the Blaugrana's have only been left with a single natural right back (Sergio dest). Emerson's return is needed to create more competition for the young American and allow Sergi Roberto move to his natural position (midfield).
