Report: Tottenham ready to offer Lucas to Everton in Richarlison bid

Tottenham Hotspur are prepared to offer Lucas Moura to Everton, as well as Harry Winks as they look to put together a move for Richarlison this summer, according to a report from The Telegraph.

Spurs appear to be pushing ahead with their plans to sign the Brazilian. Fabrizio Romano reported on Monday that they have opened talks with his agents about a possible move.

His asking price could be a stumbling block. Reports at the weekend claimed that Spurs hoped to pay £50 million for the 25-year-old.

Everton however, value the forward at £65 million. And with that, Tottenham are hoping that they can sweeten a bid with a player-plus-cash bid.

Harry Winks is an Everton target. But The Telegraph adds that Lucas Moura could also be offered to Frank Lampard’s side.

It would not be a surprise to see Lucas leave Spurs in this window. The £23 million star did lose his place following the arrival of Dejan Kulusevski in January.

Interestingly, Lucas has already insisted that he is not planning to leave.

Tottenham prepared to offer Lucas to Everton

You would imagine Lucas may not be too happy about being involved in a bid for Richarlison. Everton only secured Premier League survival in the final couple of games of the season.

The Toffees have a lot of work to do to get themselves back amongst the top-half of the table. And thus, Lucas would surely have huge reservations about moving to Goodison Park.

He has already expressed his desire to stay at Spurs. And he would be joining Everton in a deal that would see the Toffees lose arguably their best player.

It would be fantastic for Tottenham if a swap deal was possible. But surely, Lucas – who Jose Mourinho labelled ‘amazing‘ – would not be prepared to go in an exchange.
