The Lowdown: Spurs eye Richarlison move…
As per reliable sources, Spurs and their manager Antonio Conte hold an interest in signing the Brazil international, with journalist Bruno Andrade of UOL Esporte even claiming that advanced talks have been held.
While the likes of David Ornstein (The Athletic) have said things aren’t moving quite so quickly, some of his sources ‘close’ to the Toffees believe that a Tottenham move for the 25-year-old is inevitable (Twitter).
Conte is eyeing a alternative centre-forward option to Harry Kane, with one reporter now sharing an exciting rumoured Premier League development involving Richarlison.
The Latest: Tottenham rumour emerges…
Spurs’ north London rivals are apparently in the chase as well, but it is now believed that the Lilywhites have leaped ahead of them in the pursuit to sign the 25-year-old.
The Verdict: Promising…
Richarlison would be a brilliant signing for Conte, especially if Everton sell for less than their desired transfer fee, which is reported by Ornstein to be a possibility,
The Brazil international finished 2021/22 as Everton’s top scorer and provider of assists, marking himself out as a potent threat in the final third. He also ranked as Frank Lampard’s best overall performer by average match rating, whilst taking more shots at goal per 90 minutes than any other Everton player (WhoScored).
If Spurs can get a deal over the line for the 25-year-old, it’s safe to say that Conte would be more than pleased.
