Richarlison set for Tottenham move

Richarlison on his way to Spurs

Tottenham have won the race to sign Richarlison, with the Brazilian forward set to sign a five year deal at White Hart Lane. The Everton player, who has been amongst the Goodison Park outfit's best players in recent years, has been pushing for a transfer to Spurs since the club made their interest known at the beginning of the transfer window.

Numerous teams have been looking to hijack Tottenham's move for Richarlison, but the former Watford player has had his heart set on a move to Tottenham. Chelsea had made a last ditch effort to sign the versatile 25-year-old, with a bid made at the eleventh hour worth a reported £55 million.

According to reports, Tottenham will pay £50 million up front for Richarlison, with a further £10 million paid depending on club successes over the next three years.

Spurs have already signed Yves Bissouma, Ivan Perisic and Fraser Forster this summer, and more new faces are expected to arrive, as manager Antonio Conte seeks to rebuild his squad ahead of the new season beginning in August.
