As sports mail revealed last month the Brazil international is set to leave Goodison Park this summer, with Spurs among the teams interested in the striker.

However, the Toffees will demand a hefty price tag on their striker and will consider nothing less than £50m.
Everton are aware of Tottenham’s interest in Richarlison and are open to further talks with Spurs.
Indeed, we believe that an agreement is achievable. Richarlison would find the opportunity to play Champions League football with Spurs next season too good to turn down.
But the biggest hurdle to a deal appears to be the Merseyside club’s valuation.
The South American has two years to run on his existing contract, so Everton are under no immediate pressure to sell, although their high-profile financial situation could become a factor as head coach Frank Lampard tries to strengthen his squad this summer. .
Richarlison emerged as one of the Toffees’ survival heroes as they managed to avoid relegation in their penultimate game of the season against Crystal Palace.
Richarlison have scored six goals in nine games to ensure safety but the Merseyside club are now preparing for the prospect of losing the South American ahead of next season.
