Tottenham Hotspur on Verge of Completing £50 Million Deal in Principle for Brazilian International Attacker


“Here we go!” Fabrizio Romano has announced Tottenham Hotspur and Everton have agreed on a deal for the transfer of Richarlison for a fee reported to be in the region of £50 million plus £10 million in add-ons.

Personal terms have been agreed upon, with a medical scheduled to take place imminently. Everton did not want to lose their star man, but with the club reportedly losing over £300 million during the past few seasons, they were under pressure to sell to balance the books before the financial year ends for football clubs on June 30.

Richarlison: Tottenham Hotspur Seal Deal for Brazilian International

Brazilian Attacker Heading to Tottenham Hotspur

Richarlison is signing for Tottenham Hotspur with a medical being scheduled to take place once the remaining paperwork has been signed. Antonio Conte has made it clear they wanted Richarlison, and now they appear to have landed their man.

The Brazilian international follows Ivan Perisic, Yves Bissouma and Fraser Forster in strengthening the Tottenham squad ahead of the club’s return to the Champions League.

Richarlison has been an integral part of the Everton team since 2018, but he’s now looking to test himself in a new environment with Champions League football on offer.

The Brazilian brings an international pedigree to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, having been capped 36 times for Brazil. He has an impressive strike rate for a struggling Toffees side, scoring 53 goals in 152 games.

Richarlison will help unburden some of the attacking responsibility carried by Harry Kane and Son Heung-min. He’s a willing runner who is superb at forcing mistakes out of the opposition. The Brazilian attacker has shown he can score goals in the Premier League.

He provides Conte with flexibility in attack, as he can play as a lone striker or in a partnership. Richarlison is also a nightmare for the opposition when he plays out wide with his directness and constant running, meaning the opposition never have a peaceful moment when he’s playing.
