Tottenham closing in on Richarlison

Football Transfer Centre

Tottenham are in advanced talks to sign the Everton forward. Richarlison was the key player for Everton in their battle to stay in the Premier League, as the Brazilian scored 6 goals in the last 9 games.


Despite successfully staying up, Everton are facing financial struggles caused by many transfer mistakes over the years. Richarlison and Dominic Clavert - Lewin are Everton's most valuable players, and the Merseyside team might be forced to sell one, if not both, of their main strikers.


Tottenham is in talks with Richarlison over a move worth around £50 million; with Arsenal and Manchester United interested, it seems that Tottenham have the upper hand as they can offer the Brazilian Champions League football next season.


Tottenham have struggled for years to find a backup for Harry Kane, and Richarlison might be the answer. The Brazilian probably won't have as much game time as he had back at Everton, but with Tottenham back in the Champions League, the London club will have more matches to play, which means more opportunities for the 26-year-old to make an impact


Harry Winks might play a part in the deal between Tottenham and Everton as the 26-year-old is a target for Frank Lampard. The former Chelsea player and manager who kept Everton in the Premier League is highly interested in loaning Billy Gilmour or Connor Gallagher from Chelsea, but those deals seem more difficult to seal. Gallagher had a successful season at Crystal Palace, and he is very likely to be in Thomas Tuchel's plans, while Billy Gilmour is a more realistic move.
