Tottenham Hotspur want to make a bid for Richarlison before the end of the month, with Goal Brasil reporting that the board plan to meet with his agent in the coming days.

And he may not be the only Brazil international Spurs bid for in the very near future. Goal reports that Tottenham want to make an offer for Richarlison in the next few days.

Richarlison is keen to join Antonio Conte’s men with Champions League football on offer to the 25-year-old. And a meeting between the Tottenham board and his agents could take place imminently with talks already underway.

Of course, Everton are not going to let the former Watford star leave on the cheap. In fact, reports have claimed that they could demand £65 million for the forward.

That would make Richarlison Tottenham’s record signing if a move went through. But with Daniel Levy involved in negotiations, you would imagine that Spurs will attempt to pay considerably less.

Tottenham to bid for Richarlison

Tottenham have already been one of the early pace-setters in the transfer window. But it still feels as though their big, marquee deals are yet to come.

Obviously, Raphinha would be an amazing signing. But a deal for Richarlison would be a massive statement of intent. And in many ways, he is perfect for Spurs.

He is good enough to provide cover for Harry Kane up front. But he is also able to play in other attacking roles, as he has shown on Merseyside when Dominic Calvert-Lewin is fit.

Richarlison is a ‘special‘ player. And it seems that Spurs fans may learn very soon whether there is a decent chance of him ending up in Conte’s ranks this summer.
