Report: Club insiders think their 'really special' player has a huge chance of joining Tottenham this summer

Tottenham Hotspur are being linked with a move for Everton striker, Richarlison, as the club continue to look for new players this summer.

Richarlison has emerged as a target for Spurs after enjoying another standout season for Everton. Indeed, it was the Brazilian’s fine finish to the season which helped the Toffees ensure they remained in the top flight.

The Athletic has substantiated a number of reports from earlier in the day which suggested Richarlison was indeed on Tottenham’s radar. And in a further comment in The Athletic’s report, it’s claimed that some inside Everton believe that a deal to see the Brazilian striker move on is very much on the cards this summer.

It’s believed Everton want around £50m to consider selling Richarlison. Along with Dominic Calvert-Lewin, the striker is one of Everton’s most saleable assets. As we know, the club is in dire straights following years of big spending, and needs to recoup some money to stay within the FFP framework.

Tottenham, meanwhile, are desperate to add some new faces to their squad. Antonio Conte wants new players to help the club’s Champions League push. Spurs have already signed Ivan Perisic and Fraser Forster.

TBR’s View: Richarlison Is Definitely Good Enough For Tottenham

The good thing about Richarlison when it comes to Tottenham is that he does actually fit. Yes, he is a striker. But he’s shown with Everton he can play those wide forward roles too, very much Heung-Min Son does.

He’s proven at PL level, is getting better by the year, and is obviously keen to prove himself on the biggest stage going into the World Cup. Dubbed a ‘really special’ player, that is an accurate description for Richarlison.

Tottenham need good squad depth and Richarlison is certainly a player who improves that aspect for Conte.
