Chelsea to rival Spurs for Brazilian attacker
Chelsea are set to go head-to-head with Tottenham Hotspur in the race to sign Everton attacker Richarlison this summer.
The Blues are keen on reinforcing their attack for next season, and manager Thomas Tuchel is eyeing at least two forwards.
Manchester City's Raheem Sterling is the top priority, but Sky Sports claims that Richarlison could be another option for them.
Richarlison has been heavily linked with Tottenham in recent weeks, and it is said that the Brazilian would prefer to join them.
However, the £50 million price tag is proving problematic for the north London giants, and this could hand a boost to Chelsea.
The Blues are prepared to spend big under new owner Todd Boehly. They could go on a spending spree of up to £200 million.
Aside from their attack, they are expected to strengthen their central defence after the exits of Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen.
Juventus' Matthijs de Ligt has recently emerged as the prime transfer target, but he could cost at least £69m, as per Corriere dello Sport.
