Richarlison deal: ' difficult to say goodbye to Everton.Richarlison signs five-year deal at Spurs to become club's fourth summer signing

Tottenham offered £40m in writing at 4pm on Wednesday and Everton chairman Bill Kenwright initially went away, believing the offer was insufficient.But a deal was later struck, with the north London side paying an initial £50m with a further £10m in add-ons as Richarlison completed his Spurs medical in Brazil.

Everton were not happy with the overall £60m package, but had to accept that fee to ensure Frank Lampard has wriggle room in the transfer market.The 25-year-old becomes Spurs’ fourth summer signing after Fraser Forster, Ivan Perisic and Yves Bissouma.

Tottenham are also closing in on a loan deal for Clement Lenglet from Barcelona, while they are in advanced talks with Middlesbrough to sign Djed Spence.

Everton are understood to be under pressure to bring themselves in line with the Premier League’s Profit and Sustainability rules before the end of their financial year, which was midnight on July 1.Following confirmation of the move, Richarlison posted on social media: “It’s very difficult to say goodbye to a place that has become my home, to fans who welcomed me as if I were one of them and a club that treated me kindly and helped me develop my sense of community and empathy.”It’s a great deal for Spurs. Obviously, with Antonio Conte and the strong position he’s in having got them qualified for the Champions League, he’s an ambitious manager and he would have demanded money to strengthen the squad, and he’s clearly got it.

“The Richarlison deal is interesting. He doesn’t immediately strike me as a Conte player but he’s a very talented boy and he has a great desire for the game. However, he can blow hot and cold, temperamentally as well so I’m sure Conte will try to get a grip of him.”Where will he play? When you are buying him for that amount of money you are assuming he will play, so it will probably be on that right side with Heung-Min Son on the left and Harry Kane through the middle.

“That is quite a strike force if they can harness Richarlison’s abilities.“The man affectionately nicknamed O Pombo [Portuguese for ‘the pigeon’] due to his goal celebration has spread his wings.

Richarlison is now a role model to millions in Brazil as the country’s No 9 and has flown the nest again. His ascent up the football ladder has no limits.
