Richarlison transfer boost
Former Spurs manager Harry Redknapp has said he believes that Frank Lampard will “have to sell” Richarlison this summer.
Antonio Conte is reportedly targeting the Everton ace as his next summer signing to add quality and depth to his forward line. And Redknapp, who is Everton manager Lampard’s uncle, says the Toffees boss “as no money to spend”.
And in a word of advice, Redknapp has said that “sometimes you have to sell your best player to try and get two or three in”. That could be a huge encouragement to Conte as he tries to bring the Brazilian forward to north London.
Everton drop £20m hint
Richarlison’s current club Everton have hinted they could be ready to part ways with the Brazilian as they eye up his £20m replacement.
According to football.london, the Toffees could sign Watford’s Emmanuel Dennis in a £20m deal following their relegation to the Championship. It is claimed that the Nigeria international is one of several options currently under consideration, which suggests the club are open to selling their prized asset this summer.
Conte’s latest step
Tottenham Hotspur’s signing of Brighton & Hove Albion midfielder Yves Bissouma is the latest step towards challenging for major honours next season.
It is little secret that Conte wants to challenge for silverware with the north London outfit, and the club has undertaken an ambitious transfer plan this summer to help him achieve that goal. The club reportedly have £150million to spend and still have a significant amount of that remaining despite welcoming the likes of Ivan Perisic, Fraser Forster and Bissouma in recent days.
And Mirror Football’s Darren Lewis says Bissouma’s arrival marks just the latest step in Antonio Conte’s ambitious rebuild of his squad and quest to win trophies for the club.
