The 22-year-old has spent the past two years at Real Betis and has become an integral member of their team - netting one goal and assisting four more in 26 La Liga appearances this term.
Emerson, who is partly owned by Betis, is due to return to Barcelona this summer, but he is supposedly one of several players that the cash-strapped Catalans could look to offload in a bid to raise funds for summer business.
The report adds that Betis do not have the financial resources to sign the defender permanently, and the player is in high demand too, with the two Milan clubs and Bayer Leverkusen supposedly eyeing a summer move for the Brazilian.
Emerson has not made a single appearance for Barcelona since he initially joined from Atletico Mineiro in 2019, but the Catalans have reportedly slapped a €25m (£21m) price tag on his head. body check tags ::
