Everton ‘bracing to lose Richarlison’ as Tottenham’s Antonio Conte weighs up transfer bid | Football | Sport


Tottenham are reportedly fascinated with signing Everton’s saviour Richarlison, as Antonio Conte looks to strengthen ahead of next season. Tottenham secured Champions League football on the ultimate day of the Premier League season, and the Italian is already seeking to bolster his squad.

Richarlison is being closely monitored by Tottenham, but Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona have also shown an interest, in line with the Every day Mail.

The Brazilian was doubtless considered one of the most important reasons that Everton avoided an unpleasant Premier League relegation, and Richarlison is a cult figure at Goodison. However the 25-year-old has big ambitions, ones that outweigh Everton’s current trajectory.

With two years remaining on his current contract, Everton are under no immediate pressure to sell Richarlison. But given their poor financial status they may do with balancing the books and are bracing for a summer raid.

Harry Winks’ stay on the club may finally be coming to an end, and Tanguy Ndombele is more likely to be sold after a sour end to his Tottenham profession on loan with Lyon. And Lucas Moura has been linked with an exit, since Kulusevski has limited his playing time.

Richarlison can be a welcome addition as Conte looks to herald attacking support for Son Heung-min and Harry Kane, with squad depth essential with Champions League commitments. And resulting from his versatility, he may very well be utilized in quite a lot of areas by Conte, something that the Italian is keen on.
