Everton: Lucas Moura could be included in Richarlison deal

Everton: Lucas Moura could be included in Richarlison deal -Everton News

Everton could be offered Lucas Moura as part of Richarlison’s prospective move to Tottenham Hotspur, The Telegraph’s Matt Law reports.

The lowdown

It emerged at the weekend that Antonio Conte and Spurs want to add Richarlison to their ranks this summer.

Spurs have not yet made a formal offer and they do have other targets in mind if they deem Everton’s demands excessive.

29-year-old Moura played most of his football last season on the right flank but also operated as an attacking midfielder/second striker at times.

He isn’t a first choice option at the North London club, with 15 of his 34 Premier League appearances in 2021/22 coming as a substitute.

Law had already reported that Spurs are willing to include midfielder Harry Winks in a package for Richarlison.

The latest

Now Law writes that Spurs are open to offering the Toffees both Moura and Winks.

Everton value Richarlison at ‘well over £50million’, and so they’d only accept a package that was equivalent to their price tag.

They will, of course, have to be interested in both players too.

The verdict

Should Everton be interested in Moura? Well, he has played 137 games in the English top-flight, but his headline numbers aren’t spectacular – 19 goals and 16 assists.

Everton fans! Do you remember who scored your first league goal of the 21/22 season?

However, former Spurs ‘keeper Paul Robinson believes he makes up for that with his work rate.

“Regardless of when and where he plays, you get 150 per cent from him,” he told Football Insider. “His energy with and without the ball is second to none.”

The Brazilian, who featured in the 2018/19 Champions League Squad of the Season after a hat-trick in the semifinal comeback against Ajax, brings pedigree and relentlessness, but is the lack of end product a concern?

In other news, this journalist is fretting after what he read about Richarlison.
