Both Richarlison and Anthony Gordon were linked with moves to Tottenham, with fans now starting to believe that a deal is in the cards. Tottenham has been linked with a move for Richarlison since the window opened, while Gordon has been linked with a move to north London since. Everton is already aware that Tottenham is interested in Richarlison and Gordon, with Everton’s expected offer coming from Spurs later this week.
Spurs are willing to ramp up their interest in the Brazil striker, with the club also considering making a move for his Everton teammate, the Guardian reveal. The Brazil striker is Spur’s primary transfer target, with The Brazilian is understood to be looking to move on from Goodison Park with the desire to play Champions League football. Tottenham is heavily monitoring the Everton star, Richarlison. Richarlison has netted 53 goals and set up 14 more in 152 games for Everton since joining from Watford in the summer of 2018.
Everton is eager to sell £50 million-rated Richarlison, which Chelsea also wants, and the Brazilian is anxious to go elsewhere. However, the Merseyside club’s board has stated unequivocally that they would not move winger Gordon, who is a huge fan favourite. The England Under-21 international wants to join Spurs, and the club is hopeful that the big dual offer would be too much to refuse. They have made a solid drive to recruit both players since they are aware of Everton’s financial difficulties. The club must reduce its obligations by the end of the fiscal year, which is this week. This is to ensure that the Premier League‘s profitability and sustainability requirements are followed. Everton risks sanctions, possibly a point penalty, if they do not make a significant deal this week. Tottenham has already had a successful transfer window.
Amid all the talks of Richarlison joining Tottenham, there may be a player that can go the other way, with Everton still interested in Harry Winks. Spurs made an aggressive move for both of the stars at Goodison Park, knowing that Goodison Park is in complex financial shape. Everton is looking to sign Tottenham midfielder Harry Winks, who could be used as a makeweight in negotiations over Richarlison and Gordon.
Spurs, though, would face Chelseas competition for the Brazilian striker, and they will have to make an attractive offer to persuade Everton to part company with their teammate. Richarlison has been reported as being tracked by Tottenham ever since he was at Watford. At the same time, Anthony Gordon is being scouted as a future star following his breakout year with the Everton first team.
