Tottenham Hotspur have ‘opened talks’ for the signing of Everton star Richarlison, according to claims from the Brazilian media.
Goal Brasil writes that Spurs should place a bid for the forward ‘in the coming days’, as the London side want to meet his staff and ‘discuss the numbers’ for a deal.
It’s said ‘there is the possibility’ Richarlison’s agents will meet members of Tottenham’s board, and the desire from the London side is to ‘formalise an offer and deliver it to Everton still in the month of June’.
According to Goal Brasil, Richarlison wants to sort out his future at the end of his holidays in Brazil, and is said to be attracted to the idea of playing in the Champions League.
Goal Brasil add that Everton haven’t set a price for the sale yet, despite knowing his wish of moving to a European ‘giant’.
It’s said that the player’s staff, who’ve been handling the talks, also had approaches from Bayern Munich, Manchester United, Paris Saint Germain and Real Madrid.
The report doesn’t mention how much Tottenham are willing to spend on the signing.
