Report: Tottenham target Richarlison has ruled out joining Arsenal
Richarlison has ruled out joining Arsenal this summer, according to UOL, amid reports Tottenham Hotspur have opened talks with his agents about a move from Everton.
Richarlison looks increasingly likely to leave the Toffees. Of course, he played a pivotal role in keeping Frank Lampard’s side in the Premier League.
Reports claimed Tottenham were eyeing a £50 million move for the Brazilian. However, Everton want £65 million for the forward. So there are plenty of hurdles to clear before he joins Antonio Conte’s side.
But it seems that one has now disappeared. UOL has provided an update on Richarlison’s future. They list a number of sides interested in signing the 25-year-old.
Arsenal are amongst his admirers. However, the report claims that the Gunners have been ruled out by Richarlison himself.
UOL reiterates that Tottenham lead the race for Richarlison.
Richarlison has ruled out joining Arsenal
Arsenal may not have been too optimistic about their chances of signing Richarlison anyway. They are battling a number of Champions League sides for his signature.
However, there is a really exciting opportunity at the Emirates this summer. Arsenal need a marquee forward to come in and make themselves the focal point of Mikel Arteta’s side.
The Gunners may have hoped that Richarlison – who was described as ‘special‘ – would be interested in that role. But it would appear that he is looking to move elsewhere.
That is good news for Tottenham. It does appear that Spurs have set the early pace in the race to sign the former Watford man.
There is just the matter of battling Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea. UOL suggests PSG are looking elsewhere. But it is still going to be a tough task for Tottenham.
