Tottenham to sign Richarlison

Tottenham reportedly reached a ‘full agreement’ with Everton over signing Richarlison after Chelsea ‘made an attempt to hijack the deal’.

Spurs have already signed Yves Bissouma, Ivan Perisic and Fraser Forster this summer.

Richarlison has been Everton’s standout player over the past four seasons. He was key as the Toffees narrowly avoided relegation last term.

The Brazil international grabbed six goals and two assists in his final ten Premier League games in 2021/22.

Tottenham have moved to sign him and the player is set to undergo his medical on Thursday.

Fabrizio Romano has now revealed that Richarlison is set to join Spurs for £60m.

He notes that Chelsea ‘made an attempt to hijack the deal’ before Tottenham reached a ‘full agreement’ with Everton. This deal has been in place since Thursday morning.

According to Ajax boss Alfred Schreuder, their deal to sign Tottenham Hotspur winger Steven Bergwijn is ‘not yet finalised’ amid interest from Everton.

Bergwijn made the move to Spurs during the January transfer window in 2020. They paid around £26m to sign him from PSV.

The Dutchman has only been a bit-part player for Tottenham over the past two-and-a-half seasons.

The 24-year-old started four times for Antonio Conte’s side in the Premier League last term.

His highlight came as he scored a late brace to help Tottenham beat Leicester City 3-2 in January. He only played 546 minutes for them in the Premier League though.

Ajax have been heavily linked with Bergwijn of late. It was revealed last week that they have agreed on a £20m deal with Spurs.

Everton are also showing an interest in Bergwijn. Spurs have looked to offer him to the Toffees in a player-plus-cash deal for Richarlison, but this has been ‘firmly rejected’.

Schreuder has revealed that Ajax’s deal for Bergwijn is not yet completed:

“That has not yet been finalised. [I am] waiting calmly. I focus on the players I do have,” Schreuder said (via Sport Witness).

“Those I don’t have, I can’t do anything about that now.”
