After much deliberation over the past few weeks it’s finally over as star player agree huge deal in a five years contract on table for him.
Richarlison, an Everton attacker, is “on track” to sign a £60 million transfer to Tottenham this week, according a new report by UOL writer Bruno Andrade.
According to rumours on Tuesday [Telegraph, June 28] that Spurs had offered £20 million plus Steven Bergwijn to close a deal, the Brazilian has been linked to the north London club.
Even though that transaction was turned down, according to UOL, the deal is progressing favourably and might be finished by the end of the week despite Chelsea’s interest.

Although there is still no agreement, it is thought that £60 million would be sufficient to persuade the Toffees to release the 25-year-old.
According to reports, Richarlison and the club have reached a personal agreement on a five-year contract that would last until 2027.
Bidding battle for richarlison
If Chelsea is truly interested in signing Richarlison, then we should be doing everything in our power to delay the transaction and spark a bidding war to maximise our profit.
On paper, £60 million looks like a fair price given that he has two years left on his contract with the club and that we originally spent £ 50 million for him.
But if Everton can obtain more, and we most certainly can given the market price for attacking players at the moment, we have to make every effort to do so.
The pressure is on Spurs to make the offer we desire because they want to close the deal quickly. We have our own work to accomplish, and while the money would be helpful, we are the team in this circumstance with the most clout.
In order to fully replace him when he ultimately leaves, Everton has to start acting like the major club we are and sticking to our valuations to secure the best deal we can.
