Reliable journalist Fabrizio Romano has now shared the latest news on Richarlison’s proposed exit from Everton.
The Lowdown: Financial situation
Whilst the Toffees are reluctant to sell their star player this summer, especially with having narrowly avoided relegation last season, the Blues may still be forced into letting the Brazil international go.
So far, Everton have held strong on to their £60m valuation of the 25-year-old.
The Latest: Romano’s update
Romano has now shared the latest news on Richarlison’s transfer saga. Taking to Twitter, the journalist claimed:
“Tottenham are progressing in talks with Everton for Richarlison. Negotiations are already well advanced on personal terms, while discussions between clubs will continue this week.
“Winks has also been part of the talks – structure of the deal not agreed yet.”
The Verdict: Huge loss
Whilst the winger was the Toffees’ top scorer in the league last season with ten goals, the Brazilian also contributed to other areas of the pitch.
When compared with positional peers across Europe over the past year, Richarlison ranks in the 99th percentile for blocks, in the 95th percentile for tackles and in the 93rd percentile for interceptions (via FB Ref).
Will Richarlison leave Everton this year?
This illustrates how much of an effect the 25-year-old has on Everton, leading the press from the front and never letting opponents breathe, especially at Goodison Park, where he is beloved for that very reason.
His departure would be a massive blow for the club.
