Tottenham: Richarlison ‘very unlikely’ to join Juventus
Tottenham Hotspur forward Richarlison is ‘very unlikely’ to join Juventus despite recent links to the Italian club, according to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano.
The Lowdown: Richarlison to leave?
Richarlison has recently expressed his unhappiness with the game time that he has received at Tottenham so far this season, which could add more fuel to the fire of the reports linking him with a move away from the club.
ESPN have previously indicated that Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti is eyeing the Brazilian for a summer move, with CalcioMercatoWeb more recently reporting that Juventus are considering him as a potential Dusan Vlahovic replacement.
The Latest: Romano’s update
Speaking to CaughtOffside, Romano has now detailed that there is no truth in the rumours linking the forward with a move to the Serie A club.
The transfer guru said: “Despite some rumours in the Italian press, my understanding is that there is absolutely nothing between Juventus and Richarlison as of now,”
“Spurs spent big money for him, I think it’s very unlikely deal with Juventus and nothing is ongoing right now.
“It’s important to understand who will be the Spurs coach next season to understand more on Richarlison.”
The Verdict: Good news
While the 25-year-old has not set the world alight since arriving from Everton in a £60m summer deal, Spurs should undoubtedly look to keep hold of him beyond the end of the season.
Although it has been sporadic, the former Watford man has displayed the vast quality that he possesses at times, most recently impressing in the 3-1 victory against Nottingham Forest, weighing in with an assist, to the delight of Tottenham fans.
Lauded as ‘incredible’ by the media for his performances with his country, it is only a matter of time before similar displays become the norm at club level, and Antonio Conte should look to give him an extended run in the team during the remainder of the campaign.
