Richarlison agrees medical deal with Tottenham which could see the Brazilian become the club’s second most expensive transfer


Richarlison has completed his medical at Tottenham as his move from Everton nears.

Arsenal and Chelsea had both expressed interest in the Brazilian, but Spurs quickly agreed a deal for the 25-year-old.

He agreed to personal terms earlier this week and passed his medical on Thursday, sky sports reports.

Should the fee reach £60m, Richarlison would be Spurs’ second most expensive signing, behind Tanguy Ndombele, who joined the club for £63m in 2019.

Bill Kenwright and Daniel Levy, chairman of Everton and Tottenham respectively, were spotted having dinner over the weekend and Richarlison was probably the main topic of conversation.

He joined the Merseyside club from Watford in 2018 and has scored 53 times in 152 games.

Last season he scored ten Premier League goals to help keep the Toffees in the Premier League.

June 30 is also an important date, as it is on this date that the financial year of football clubs ends.

Everton have lost £372million over the past three years and need to balance their books.

Tottenham were quick to give manager Antonio Conte new signings this summer and he was backed by chairman Levy.

Yves Bissouma joined Brighton for an initial fee of £25million, while Ivan Perisic and Fraser Forster signed free transfers.

Spurs are also close to an agreement to sign defender Clement Lenglet.

The 27-year-old French international centre-back is set to be loaned out by Barcelona for the season.

The next name on the list for Conte is expected to be Middlesbrough full-back Djed Spence.
