Richarlison to Tottenham transfer news.
Richarlison has dropped a cheeky hint that he might be on the move to Tottenham Hotspur after reports that Antonio Conte’s side are in talks to sign the Brazilian.
The Brazilian was seen in a friend’s Instagram post wearing a San Antonio Spurs jersey in a cheeky hint to a move. Like Tottenham, the NBA side also goes by the Spurs – in reference to ‘cowboy spurs’ who used to rule the roost in Texas.
The 25-year-old’s future has recently come under increased scrutiny after the Brazilian told those interested to ‘wait for June’ before a decision would be made.

“I’ve already made it clear to Everton board. I’ve already talked to Lampard too, with my agents: they know what I want”, he told GloboEsporte today. https://t.co/tr5MBR3dR0

Seemingly considering his options, at that time Chelsea and Arsenal were both linked with Richarlison, who played a huge role in ensuring that Everton retained their top-flight status last term.
As reported by The Athletic, Tottenham are interested in signing Richarlison from Everton as Spurs are considering this window as they seek to strengthen their squad.
However, they could face competition from their North London rivals, Arsenal, who are also keeping tabs on the striker.
Richarlison to Tottenham Transfer News.
Richarlison is expected to be the direct replacement of Netherlands international winger Steven Bergwijn who is keen to return to Eredivise this summer with Ajax, as Antonio Conte is immensely excited by the unwavering work ethic that the Brazilian possess.
Albeit not a prolific goalscorer – netting a season-high 13 Premier League goals on two occasions – but his work ethics, and mentality are unquestionable as he was seen guiding Everton to the Premier League safety.
Last season the Brazilian scored 11 times and provided five assists in 33 appearances across all competitions, earning an impressive 7.02 Sofascore rating whilst winning 7.1 duels, making 1.3 tackles and taking 2.4 shots per game. Those statistics highlight both an attacking and defensive prowess from the 25-year-old.
And therefore will provide much-needed cover for both Harry Kane and Son Heung-min as Tottenham prepare to embark on the additional demands of a Champions League campaign.
Will Richarlison leave Everton in 2022?
The Brazil international is not about to push for a summer switch away from Everton. He is under contract until 2024, meaning the Toffees are under no pressure to sell.
Richarlison has, however, made no secret of the fact that he would like to play Champions League football.
Everton would be looking to receive a higher fee than the €60 million (£51 million) that has been reported for Richarlison, but sources feel they are unlikely to achieve that.
