“It doesn’t surprise me” Saints Legend Says He Isn’t Surprised To See This Brazilian Hotshot Get Linked To Tottenham

Published

Tottenham Hotspur have been heavily linked with Watford youngster Richarlison and reports indicate that the Lilywhites could make a move for him in the summer window.

The performances of the starlet for Watford have been majestic, earning rave reviews and eyeballs from across Europe. Such has been the impact that within six months of joining the club, Richarlison is being linked with a move to a big club.

That big club could be Tottenham, as this report from The Mirror indicates. Mauricio Pochettino gets attracted to talented youngsters and likewise, youngsters feel comfortable working under the tutelage of the Argentine. No wonder then that the 20-year-old attacker, who switched to Watford from Brazilian club Fluminense in the summer transfer window for a reported fee of £11.5million, is interesting Tottenham.

Richarlison has already scored 5 goals and 2 assists in 11 Premier League starts for the Hornets this season and is one of the prime reasons for their ascendancy.

So, will he make the move? Southampton legend Matt Le Tissier has suggested that Richarlison needs to improve his finishing. He is also not surprised that the player is being linked with a move away from Watford.

“He has to sharpen up his finishing,”

“He is only young and he will be expected to get better, and it doesn’t surprise me that he has been linked to bigger clubs,”

Wil the player make a move in January? No matter how strong the interest is, it would be difficult for Spurs to get Richarlison in the January window. Watford have made a strong start to the Premier League season but the recent uncertainty around the future of their manager Marco Silva has added to their problems.

Even if the manager departs to Everton – with whom he has been linked – it is highly improbable that Spurs would be able to get Richarlison in the January window. There is no news about the player’s views on the links and what he thinks about Spurs interest. But, even if he raises a tantrum, he may not get his wish. At best, Tottenham can look at next summer for a deal.
