The Telegraph have revealed that Tottenham Hotspur have their eye on Everton trio Richarlison, Anthony Gordon and Ben Godfrey ahead of the summer transfer window.

Tottenham are expected to be one of the busiest clubs across Europe during this summer’s transfer window ahead of Antonio Conte’s first full season in charge.

Reports have indicated that the North Londoners are ready to listen to offers for as many as ten first-team players (Evening Standard) while Conte is thought to have requested around six new signings (Fichajes).

If The Telegraph’s latest update is to be believed, Spurs could look to poach three players from the Toffees.

The report claims that the Lilywhites have been closely watching Everton’s survival bid and hold an interest in striker Richarlison, midfielder Gordon and centre-back Godfrey.

It is explained that Gordan and Godfrey being homegrown players appeals to Spurs given that Conte’s men are close to the limit of foreign players allowed.

The report adds that Richarlison is likely to attract interest from a number of clubs this summer.

Following Leeds’ loss to Chelsea, Everton look to have all but secured their place in the Premier League next season. So, Spurs will not be able to poach whoever they want from Goodison Park.

However, the Toffees might put Richarlison up for sale since he has just two years left on his contract. The Brazilian would be a very astute signing as his versatility would make him an excellent squad player.
