Arsenal have been linked with a move to sign Richarlison from Everton this summer, but Tottenham are now claimed to be considering using Everton’s interest in Harry Winks in a swap deal.
The Gunners have been actively looking at attacking targets to add to our front line this summer, with both Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang yet to have been replaced. While Gabriel Jesus looks likely to come in this summer, we are expected to add one more, likely someone who can not only provide backup at CF but also in behind, and Richarlison ticks those boxes.
The Brazilian has proven to be a consistent performer during his time with both Watford and Everton in the Premier League, and after helping his side to avoid relegation he now seems open to a move to a bigger club.
While we have been linked with such a move, it is Tottenham who are now claimed to have been asked to be kept informed about his situation, and that they are considering using Everton’s interest in Harry Winks to work out a deal.
Tottenham are still well informed on Richarlison – was discussed during talks for Harry Winks-Everton. Richarlison would be open to Spurs move ⚪️ #THFC
It also depends on Raphinha domino.
Winks talks going slow, as he could be included in Richarlison talks or separated deal.

While Spurs have Champions League football to offer, I’m not sure if Richarlison would fit into their current system, and think he could well end up happy there. For that reason I’d be intrigued to see him end up with our noisy neighbours, although I don’t doubt his ability to be a big hit if Antonio Conte is able to maximise his talents.
I’d love for us to sign him, but I’m not entirely sure which role he would take in our current system either, but I would love for us to be considering him as a potential backup to Gabriel Jesus, as I think he is the non-selfish forward which could bring a lot from our other players, similarly to how Roberto Firmino does for Liverpool.
Would it feel like a blow if Spurs were to land Richarlison this summer? Where would he fit into our current side?
