According to the Telegraph, Tottenham are prepared to offer both Lucas Moura and Harry Winks to Everton in order to facilitate a move for Richarlison.

Richarlison contributed ten goals and five assists in 30 Premier League games for Frank Lampard’s team last season as they managed to secure top-flight status for another year (TransferMarkt).

The 25-year-old’s impressive displays have seen him linked to Chelsea, Arsenal, and Manchester United (The Sun), as well as Spurs (Football.London).

Richarlison can operate anywhere across the front three (TransferMarkt) and with Spurs vying to compete on all fronts next campaign, strength in depth is clearly needed.

However, Brazilian journalist Bruno Andrade has claimed that if the Lilywhites are to secure Richarlison’s services, they will have to shell out a fee in the region of £51 million this summer.

The Telegraph suggest that Fabio Paratici may look to reduce the fee that Spurs have to pay to Everton by including players such as Moura and Winks as part of any potential deal.

Lampard is said to be an admirer of Winks, but with Richarlison being a key cog in his system, a deal may not be easy to structure (Telegraph).

If Spurs begin to move on these players that Antonio Conte clearly is not interested in using, then space will open up in the squad to add real difference-makers.

Moura to Richarlison is clearly an upgrade, so if a deal with this structure is possible, I would be shocked if Paratici is not exploring it.
