Report: Fabio Paratici a fan of Richarlison but hasn’t attempted to sign him at Tottenham Hotspur
Richarlison scored 11 goals and added five assists in 33 appearances for Everton in the latest season. He has taken his total tally to 53 goals in 152 games since moving to Goodison Park, which is promising numbers considering his prime years are still ahead of him.
Spurs are looking to improve their offence this summer in order to give scoring depth behind Harry Kane and Son Heung-min. The north London team will compete in the UEFA Champions League and if they aim to end their trophy drought, offensive depth will be of the utmost importance.
Richarlison, the Everton forward, has been linked with a transfer to Tottenham this summer as Antonio Conte wants to bolster his team ahead of next season. It is believed that the Spurs director of football, Fabio Paratici, is a fan of the Brazilian
Even though Spurs have been keeping an eye on Richarlison, there are no indications that a deal for the Everton forward is imminent at this time as the North London club hasn’t made any genuine approach to sign the Brazilian until now.
Spurs may benefit from having a centre-forward like Richarlison in their ranks, given that Harry Kane currently has no backup alternatives. That isn’t ideal, especially over a long season when Kane has to be rested.
Richarlison would surely be a good choice in this situation since he has performed admirably for both Liverpool and the Brazilian national team. Furthermore, he can play as an inside attacker on both flanks, providing Antonio Conte with even more alternatives for the coming season.
Antonio Conte may be able to deploy Kane and Richarlison in a two-man partnership similar to what he did with Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez at Inter Milan.
