The Brazilian contributed ten goals and five assists in the Premier League last season as the Toffees narrowly avoided relegation to the Championship.

Richarlison joined Everton from Watford in July 2018 in a transfer worth around £50m with the 25-year-old bagging 53 goals in 152 appearances in all competitions in five campaigns at Goodison Park.

His performances for Everton have attracted admiring glances from other Premier League clubs with Tottenham, Arsenal and Chelsea all linked at one point or another.

Fabrizio Romano revealed on Wednesday that talks were ‘progressing’ over a deal for Richarlison, who’s said to be rated at £60m by Everton, adding that Spurs midfielder Harry Winks has also been ‘part of the talks’.

And the transfer expert has now provided an update, claiming a ‘full agreement on personal terms’ has now been reached with the striker.

Romano tweeted: ‘Full agreement between Richarlison representatives and Tottenham on personal terms. Long term contract agreed with his new agents, waiting to complete the deal with Everton. #THFC New direct contact scheduled soon to discuss deal details between the two clubs.’

Further reports have claimed an interest from Spurs in Barcelona centre-back Clement Lenglet.

The 27-year-old has been a bit-part player for the Catalan side since his £32m move from Sevilla four seasons ago, and started just seven La Liga games last term.

Romano claims Antonio Conte’s side are ‘closing on’ a deal for the defender after ‘new talks’ between the two clubs, with the ‘final details’ being ironed out.

It’s thought Spurs want Lenglet on loan for the season.
