Tottenham clear the way to leave Bergwijn with Richarlison’s arrival now

Tottenham Hotspur secured the arrival of Everton striker Richarlison on Friday. Attracting the 36-time international from Brazil could precipitate the departure of Ajax target Steven Bergwijn.

According to English media, Richarlison’s transfer involves an amount of approximately 70 million euros. The 25-year-old striker signs a five-year contract with Tottenham, the third English employer.

Richarlison from Brazil came to Watford in the summer of 2017, which kept him away from Ajax. A year later, he moved to Everton for around 40 million euros, scoring 53 goals and providing 14 assists in 152 matches.

With the arrival of Richarlison, Everton may be responding to the departure of Bergwijn, after whom Ajax has been chasing for so long. Reportedly, Orange International should cost between 20 and 25 million euros.

Richarlison is Tottenham’s fourth contract signing this summer, having previously signed goalkeeper Fraser Forster, midfielder Yves Bisoma and winger Ivan Perisic. Coach Antonio Conte has not lost a major player yet.

Tottenham finished fourth in the Premier League last season. Therefore, the Londoners qualified directly for the Champions League alongside the champions of Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea.
