Romano says Tottenham have now spoken with Richarlison's agents

Fabrizio Romano has told Caught Offside that Tottenham Hotspur have now spoken with Richarlison’s agents, but Spurs are not the only club interested in the Everton star.

It does appear that Richarlison’s future may be resolved in the near future. Reports at the weekend claimed that some at Goodison Park expect the Brazilian to move on.

It was also suggested that Antonio Conte’s men were hoping to do a £50 million deal. However, Everton have set an asking price of £65 million for the forward.

“Richarlison is a player that the new agents have talked about with Tottenham, as with other clubs,” he told Caught Offside.

“However, the club wants €70-75m as an opening price tag, so far it has not received offers at this level.

“Tottenham are not the only club interested, but Spurs have a real interest in Richarlison.”

Tottenham have spoken with Richarlison’s agents

Richarlison is a really divisive player. He is someone Everton fans will certainly love, particularly given the role he played in helping Frank Lampard’s men stay in the Premier League this past season.

But he is one player rival fans love to dislike. Certain aspects of his attitude attract criticism. However, there is absolutely no doubting how much quality he possesses.

He has 48 goals and 18 assists in 173 Premier League games. And he has often played in struggling sides. So there is huge potential in signing Richarlison.

He is a ‘really special‘ player. And he can play anywhere in the forward line. So he could comfortably fit into Antonio Conte’s plans in North London.

Tottenham have got the ball rolling. But clearly, they will not have an easy run towards securing his signature.
