Tottenham sign Everton forward Richarlison - Brazilian set to become club record signing
Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed the signing of Everton forward Richarlison on a five-year contract in a deal worth a reported £60 million (€70m), including future add-ons. According to the BBC, the Brazilian forward makes the move to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium as the club's most expensive signing ever, beating Tanguy Ndombélé’s €60m move from Lyon in 2019. Richarlison makes the move to Spurs in the midst of a summer spending spree, which had already seen the London club sign no less than three first team players, ahead of the Brazilian's arrival, as well as picking up Barcelona central defender Clement Lenglet on loan according to reports in England.

It’ll come as no great surprise to fans of the English top-flight to see Richarlison move on from relegation-threatened Everton, following five seasons at the club in which the 25-year-old talent has proved himself as a consistent performer in the Premier League. Over the course of 173 league games for Watford and then Everton, the forward has bagged 48 goals and 18 assists, which has led to the player being linked with moves to Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid and even Chelsea. However, it seems as though Tottenham may have beaten all others to his signature.
However, it seems as though Tottenham’s rebuild under Conte won’t end with just the signing of an exciting forward. According to Sky Sports, the English side are also hoping to secure a move for Barca defender Lenglet on a season-long loan deal. Despite being linked with moves for a number of defenders, it seems as though Spurs have settled on a quick-fix by hoping to take on the French defender, who has struggled to live up to the billing in Spain since joining Barca in 2018 from Sevilla for €36m.
