Tottenham Hotspur are now the frontrunners in the race to sign Everton’s Richarlison this summer with talks ongoing. 

This has been claimed by the transfer guru Fabrizio Romano who has been giving the low down on a potential deal between the two clubs on his Here We Go podcast.

Spurs are now believed to be progressing in their negotiations for the Brazilian forward with personal terms believed to be at an advanced stage now.

Reports have suggested it will take a deal worth over £50m to bring Richarlison to north London despite the Toffees struggling massively through their FFP issues.

Given it has now been almost two weeks since the Lilywhites completed their last piece of transfer business, Romano provided a positive update on their potential fourth summer addition:

“Tottenham are definitely frontrunners for Richarlison. So they are working on it. They are discussing directly with player’s side and from what I’m told it’s not a problem the contract of the player.

“The real point is the negotiation with Everton to understand if they want to include players or not. If they can do a potential swap deal or not. So negotiations ongoing between Tottenham and Everton for Richarlison.”

TIF Thoughts on Romano’s comments…

We are really interested to see how Richarlison, who has been dubbed a ‘really special’ player, is used by Antonio Conte if Spurs are able to complete this deal in the coming weeks.

Spurs have been crying out for a Harry Kane backup and we think Richarlison could be a really effective option to have in what is expected to be a busy season with Champions League football to contend with.

With reports suggesting a deal could be worth in the region of £60m, it is certainly a big investment to make, however, it does seem to bee the going rate for players with similar returns last season.

But the Brazilian could prove a really useful player for Conte next season with his ability to play across the front three, potentially providing an alternative to the likes of Dejan Kulusevski, too.
