Tottenham completed the signing of Richarlison from Everton on a five-year deal for a fee that could rise to £60 million ($73 million) on Friday. The Brazil international will add more depth to Spurs’ forward line, although he has a tough task ahead of him to eliminate either Harry Kane or Son Heung-min from his two vantage points to the top and left of the line. Tottenham will pay an initial £50m fee along with £10m in performance-related bonuses.

Richarlison becomes Spurs’ fourth signing of the transfer window after the Croatian winger Ivan Perisicmidfielder Yves Bissouma and goalkeeper Fraser Forster.

The London club has given a lot of support to coach Antonio Conte after the Italian won the right to attend next season’s Champions League.

“We are delighted to announce the signing of Richarlison from Everton, subject to a work permit,” Tottenham confirmed in a statement.

“The Brazilian international has signed with us until 2027.”

Richarlison has scored 53 goals in 152 appearances for the Toffees, since joining Watford for £50m in 2018.

Six of those goals have mostly come in his last nine appearances for the Toffees to keep them in the Premier League.

Despite staying, Everton are still under selling pressure due to financial fair play requirements.

The Merseyside club has lost £372m over the past three years.
