Richarlison will become Tottenham’s most expensive signing of all time when he completes his move from Everton.
The Brazilian forward will move to north London for a total fee of £60m (£50 million-plus £10m in add-ons). This converts to €70m.
Richarlison has agreed on a five-year contract with Tottenham.
In the process, the 25-year-old becomes the most expensive signing in Tottenham’s history.
The previous highest transfer fee for a player signed by Spurs was £54m for Tanguy Ndombele from Lyon in 2019.
Ndombele proved to be an almighty flop in north London, as he fell out with managers and was accused of poor professionalism.
Spurs will be hoping that their new biggest signing is far more successful than their previous record-holder.
He signed for Everton from Watford in 2018 for an initial fee of £35m, rising to £50m.
He has been capped 36 times by Brazil and scored 14 goals. And he is expected to go to the World Cup with the South Americans this year.
Richarlison becomes the latest signing in what is shaping up to be a very busy summer on the transfer market for Tottenham.
Tottenham’s chairman Daniel Levy promises a huge transfer budget to Antonio Conte.
And he has wasted no time in strengthening his squad.
He has already signed Yves Bissouma from Brighton for £25m, Ivan Perisic and Fraser Forster on free transfers, while Spurs are in negotiations for Barcelona’s Clement Llenglet.
Tottenham is also in the market for a right-wing-back and possibly another attacking midfielder or winger.
They tried to sign Leeds United’s right-winger Ralpinha, but he will be joining Chelsea or Barcelona.
Tottenham’s fans are hoping for a better season after surprisingly finishing above Arsenal and Man United.
