Tottenham are having a laugh as they plan double Everton swoop
There have been a fair number of ridiculous transfer rumours over the years but this one regarding Everton might just take the cake.
According to Alan Myers, Tottenham Hostpur are now planning a double swoop of the Toffees to sign Richarlison and Anthony Gordon this summer.
The 25-year-old Brazilian has been on Spurs’ radar for a good chunk of this summer transfer window but their sudden interest in Gordon is baffling.
The 21-year-old only broke into the Everton first-team part way through last season under Rafael Benitez and then went on to thrive once Frank Lampard took the reins at the end of January.
Even though he was one of our best players over the second half of last season, he has not earned himself a big-money move anywhere just yet and Tottenham are very cheeky to even ask about his availability.
Not just cheeky, in fact, but they’ve completely lost their marbles if they think we would be willing to let go of two of our star players from the 2021-22 campaign at once and to the same club.
Our financial fair play worries have obviously messed with Daniel Levy’s mind and if we even entertain this proposed package they are willing to offer then we have to ask serious questions of the club.
For us to accept this deal right now would require at least nine figures and they might as well throw in a couple of their own squad members too for good measure.
The two players they are trying to sign were integral to our survival last season and the likelihood may be that Richarlison goes but to try and take Gordon too is pure insanity.
Such an offer, should it be submitted, should see us raise Richarlison’s individual price just for Spurs by a good £10-15million and see what they think of their offer then.
