Report: Tottenham sign Everton forward Richarlison




 

Richarlison is set to join Tottenham from Everton after signing on the dotted line late on Thursday, according to multiple reports out of the UK.

[ TRANSFER NEWS: Liverpool | Chelsea | Tottenham | Man United | Man City | Arsenal ]

Rumors of a deal taking Richarlison from Everton to Tottenham picked up considerable steam from the start of this week to the end, culminating in a $73-million move to London and, more importantly, the UEFA Champions League.

Richarlison, 25, joined Everton from Watford for roughly $60 million in the summer of 2018. The Brazilian international scored 43 goals in 135 Premier League games for the Toffees (53 in 152 in all competitions).

Earlier this week, when the reports seemed to take a turn for the serious, we briefly discussed Richarlison moving to Tottenham thusly…

If you can look past his nationality and any preconceived notions one might have about the joga bonito nation, what you'll find is an incredibly hard-working player who, while not suited to be a superstar himself, won't ever balk at meeting Antonio Conte's sky-high demands day in and day out. In fact, Richarlison seems a safe bet to reinforce the "we must give everything we have" philosophy. A more perfect human fit is hard to imagine.
