Fabrizio Romano suggests Tottenham and Everton could pull off Richarlison-Winks swap deal
Fabrizio Romano has suggested that Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Winks could join Everton as a part of a swap deal that would see Richarlison make the move in the opposite direction.
Spurs have had a solid window so far. Ivan Perisic and Fraser Forster have come in on free transfers, while Yves Bissouma was signed from Brighton for £25 million (ESPN), which is arguably a bargain for a player of his quality.
Fabio Paratici, Daniel Levy and Antonio Conte deserve immense praise for getting these three deals over the line, but the job is not done just yet. Spurs need more new players, and Everton star Richarlison has been heavily linked.
Romano has now suggested that Spurs and the Toffees could well negotiate a swap deal that would see both clubs get what they want this summer.

Speaking on Tottenham Fan Chris Cowlin’s YouTube channel, Romano said: “Richarlison is an opportunity, but Tottenham, at the moment, are not offering what Everton want.
“It’s still early conversation, I would say, for Richarlison.
“We have to keep an eye on a potential swap deal because there are players who could be interesting for Everton – like Winks.
“Winks is a player they are discussing in a separate deal but could become an opportunity for Everton in case they will decide to discuss a potential swap deal with Richarlison.
“So, there are many things to discuss between the two clubs. They have a very good relationship.”
Tottenham want Richarlison and Everton want Winks – a player-plus-cash swap deal makes a lot of sense, but it’s easier said than done.
Reports have revealed that Frank Lampard’s side have slapped a mammoth £65 million asking price on the South American attacker, who was once branded as a ‘fantastic striker’ by Carlo Ancelotti.
It will be interesting to see how this pans out this summer. Richarlison may not become a first-choice starter at Tottenham if he joins the club considering that Conte already has Harry Kane, Son Heung-min and Dejan Kulusevski in attack.
However, the Brazilian is still a magnificent player to have thanks to his versatility, and it is no surprise at all that Tottenham are really keen to sign him this summer.
