Tottenham are 'on the verge' of reaching Everton agreement for Richarlison

Richarlison is “on the verge” of leaving Goodison Park with Tottenham close to agreeing on a deal with Everton for the 25-year-old Brazilian according to The Guardian.

The Guardian’s Fabrizio Romano reported via his personal Twitter account on Wednesday 29 June that a “full agreement” has been reached between Richarlison and Tottenham regarding personal terms.

It now appears that a move could be imminent with The Guardian claiming on Thursday 30 June, that “negotiations over the transfer are close to being finalised” with Richarlison eager to sign for Spurs.

The Brazilian managed ten goals and five assists for the Toffees in the 2021/22 Premier League season.

Summer business to start

Surely the imminent departure of the Brazilian will kickstart the Toffees into life on the transfer front.

Frank Lampard has been patiently waiting for a large transfer fee to come into Goodison Park and now it looks as if his wish could come true with the 25-year-old edging closer to the exit.

There has been no secret made that Lampard will have to utilise transfer fees to improve his squad with very little happening on the transfer front thus far at Goodison Park.

There is certainly reason for concern considering the business that has been going on around the Toffees so far this summer.

Leeds United have already invested heavily to avoid a repeat of their 2021/22 season and it’s something the Merseyside club should’ve been replicating.

The incoming Richarlison fee will surely allow Lampard to really get cracking in the transfer market.

The Brazilian helped drag Everton out of the relegation battle last season, but it feels as if it is time for the Brazil international to test himself at a higher level.

The urge to play Champions League football cannot be questioned as well as the 25-year-old wanting to put himself right in contention for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
