Richarlison: Tottenham hopeful of completing transfer deal for Everton forward by Friday
London (UK)- Tottenham’s negotiations with Everton close to reaching an agreement; Everton under pressure to meet Premier League Profit and Sustainability rules; Richarlison scored 10 goals and provided five assists for Everton last season.
Sources close to negotiations are indicating an agreement is close between the clubs.
Chelsea is in talks with Leeds over a deal for Richarlison’s compatriot Raphinha, with the Blues prepared to pay in excess of £50m to get the deal done and hold interest in Man City’s Raheem Sterling and Barcelona’s Ousmane Dembele, who is soon to be out of contract.
Why Richarlison is worth every penny
Richarlison is a role model to millions in Brazil after excelling at Everton. Affectionately known as ‘the pigeon’, his ascent up the football ladder has no limits.
A move to Spurs has been described as Lenglet’s most likely destination by a source close to negotiations if the France international is to leave the Nou Camp this summer.
However, an agreement is not yet close, with the 27-year-old, not the only centre-back Spurs making enquiries about as they look to add a left-footer to the back three.
