Richarlison has already issued ‘speechless’ transfer claim

verton forward Richarlison has already admitted the idea of leaving Everton this summer leaves him “speechless”.

The Brazilian international is a target for Tottenham as Antonio Conte looks to continue his spending spree, having already welcomed Ivan Perisic, Fraser Forster and Yves Bissouma to the club.

While Spurs understand the pursuit of a big-money forward will likely be a drawn out process, Conte ideally would like to have one signed by the time his squad jet out to Asia for a pre-season tour on July 9.

Everton are set to demand over £50m for the 25-year-old, who will enter the final two years of his contract in a matter of days, giving the club a decision to make.

Interest from Goodison Park in Spurs midfielder Harry Winks could work in the north London club’s favour, with the England international potentially being used as a makeweight.

Chelsea are another to have been credited with an interest in signing the former Watford star, who admitted to holding talks with Lampard last month.

While away on international duty, Richarlison said (via Globo Esporte): “I’ve already made it clear to the board, I’ve already talked to Lampard too, with my agents and they know what I want.

“Let’s wait for June.

“Now I can’t talk, because when we talk about leaving a club I’m kind of like this, because of the history I have at Everton, the affection that the fans have for me, when we talk about leaving I’m a little speechless.”
