‘So convinced’: Fabio Paratici thinks one of his signings is ‘perfect’ for Tottenham, says it was an easy choice to make

Tottenham Hotspur transfer guru Fabio Paratici has been speaking to the club’s social media team and thinks Richarlison is ‘perfect’ for Spurs. 

Spurs enjoyed a successful summer window as Paratici brought in seven new players for boss Antonio Conte.

He signed experienced players such as Ivan Perisic and Clement Lenglet, while also building for the future by bringing in Djed Spence and Destiny Udogie.

Paratici also picked up two Premier League proven talents in Richarlison and Yves Bissouma.

And the Italian feels it was an easy choice to sign Richarlison from Everton this summer.

Paratici thinks Richarlison is ‘perfect’ for Spurs

“We are so convinced to buy him, so far,” Paratici told Tottenham’s social channels

“Because this kind of style of football is perfect for us. Not just about technically speaking, but about character.

“He’s a fighter, he is someone that has big energy. He can play in three positions in the forward [line].

“So he’s someone that has great experience in the Premier League and the national team with Brazil. So I think he’s a really easy, technically speaking, choice.”

Paratici is clearly impressed with the way Richarlison has settled in North London.

The former Toffees man has made a real impact for Conte’s side so far and was handed his first start over the weekend.

The Brazilian certainly grabbed his opportunity too as he set-up Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg for Spurs’ opener.

Richarlison was also unlucky not to get on the scoresheet after hitting the post and having his late effort ruled out by VAR.

At this moment in time, Richarlison looks to have made the biggest impact out of Paratici’s signings.

Perisic has put in some impressive displays and it seems that Paratici is happy with his summer business.

Richarlison will be hoping to nail down a place in Conte’s starting eleven now but faces fierce competition in Harry Kane, Heung-Min Son and Dejan Kulusevski.
