Report: Tottenham will now push to sign 'magnificent' South American star after sealing Bissouma deal

Tottenham Hotspur are looking to press on with the signing of Brazilian striker Richarlison, following their £25m capture of Yves Bissouma this week.

Fabio Paratici struck gold in his search for a new midfielder as he landed the Brighton star. Bissouma has been tracked heavily by a number of Premier League teams after becoming a key figure in Graham Potter’s XI.

However, Tottenham are not done there and according to The Mirror, they will now look to push on with the signing of Richarlison for around £50m. There is a belief within the league that Everton would sell Richarlison for the right price, with Spurs one of the teams who would be willing to spend.

Reports have claimed Richarlison is also open to a move within the Premier League, although it is Tottenham who are ahead of Arsenal in his thinking.

Everton are under pressure to sell one of their big names this summer after falling into trouble when it comes to their spending. The Toffees narrowly avoided relegation, and need money into the club before they can back Frank Lampard with any meaningful sort of budget this summer.

TBR’s View: Richarlison Might Be The Missing Piece For Tottenham

While Spurs do hold an abundance of attacking talent with the likes of Kane, Son, Lucas, and Kulusevski, there is still that gap when one of the big hitters is missing. Richarlison could be the man to fill it.

Yes, he’ll want to be a starter every week if he does leave Everton. But that will be down to him to force his way into the Tottenham XI, which is getting stronger by the week at the moment.

Spurs’ summer has started well, you have to say. And if they can land Richarlison as well, then it could well be a fine season under Conte once more.
