The lowdown: Survival hero
The Brazil international ended the 2021/22 season on a high as his goals against Crystal Palace and Chelsea helped the Merseyside club secure their Premier League status.

The latest: Spurs interested
It’s claimed that Richarlison has an ‘uncertain future’ at Everton and the club are ‘bracing themselves’ for bids in the upcoming summer transfer window.
The report also states that Spurs are among the suitors ‘monitoring developments closely’ as Antonio Conte looks to the man recently hailed as possessing ‘huge talent’ by Frank Lampard to bolster the striking department at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
The verdict: Make it happen
After the news this week that Conte and transfer chief Fabio Paratici would be handed a £150milion boost to the transfer war chest from ENIC this summer after qualifying for the UEFA Champions League, the calibre of targets can naturally go up a level.
Therefore, spending big on Richarlison – who holds a market value of £45million and a contract until 2024 (Transfermarkt) – should be no issue for Spurs.
During 2021/22, the hardworking Brazilian scored 11 times and provided five assists in 33 appearances across all competitions, winning an impressive 7.1 duels and taking 2.4 shots per game and earning a 7.02 average Sofascore rating in the process.
Richarlison has previously admitted a desire to compete amongst the elite of Europe and a switch to north London to support Harry Kane and Son Heung-min makes an abundance of sense for all parties.
