English Premier League Tottenham has completed the signing of Brazilian international Richarlison. The club made the announcement in the early hours of Thursday morning after the player completed his medical with them. It is said that the deal is worth more than £50m but there are some minor issues to be finalised over the exact fee.
Tottenham Hotspur Signs Richarlison
25-years-old Richarlison will be playing his first-ever Champions League game when the season starts as Tottenham made it to the Champions League ahead of Manchester United and Arsenal. Richarlison joined Everton from Watford for £50m in 2018 and since then he has scored 53 goals in 152 appearances for the Merseyside club.
He is the club’s top scorer at Everton last season as the club narrowly avoided relegation from the Premier League. The Brazilian went into the campaign on the back of an exhausting summer, when he played for Brazil in both Copa America and the Olympic Games and scored 10 goals in the top flight. Six of those goals came in Everton’s last nine games of the season as they finished 16th and four points above the relegation zone. The Brazilian is the fourth player the club signing this summer after Foster, Ivan Perisic, and Bissouma.
