Journalist hints Spurs ‘could upgrade’ on first-team regular if they receive a big offer

The Standard’s Dan Kilpatrick has indicated that Tottenham Hotspur could be open to the possibility of selling Richarlison this summer if they receive a big offer.

Richarlison has been in excellent form for the past few months, leading the line impressively and finding the back of the net with regularity, but his future appears to be up in the air if recent reports are to be believed.

The Telegraph suggested last week that the striker is expected to be the subject of interest from Saudi Arabia when the transfer window reopens in June.

It was asserted that Al-Ittihad, who made a check on the Brazilian last summer, are expected to be joined by other Saudi sides in the race for the Tottenham man when the transfer window reopens in June.

This was also backed up by Alasdair Gold, who remarked on the Gold and Guest Talk Tottenham Podcast a couple of days ago that the forward’s future is unclear amidst the possibility of Spurs receiving offers from Saudi Arabia.

Could Tottenham sell Richarlison?

Kilpatrick has now become the latest journalist to suggest that an exit from Spurs is very much on the cards for Richarlison. He suggests that even though the former Everton man is having a good season, doubts remain over whether he is clinical enough in front of goal.

The journalist hints that Tottenham would be open to selling their number nine and signing an upgrade if they receive a big offer for him in the summer.

Spurs Web Opinion

If Tottenham have a chance to make back the money they invested in Richy, they might be seriously tempted to cash in and use the funds to land Ivan Toney.

However, I do not see Postecoglou greenlighting the 26-year-old’s sale unless he is confident that the club can bring in a world-class centre-forward.
