Richarlison joined Everton from Watford in 2018

Brazilian forward, Richarlison has joined Tottenham Hotspur on a five-year, believed to be around £60 million from Everton.

The 25-year-old helped Everton avoid the drop last season by scoring 10 goals and dishing out five assists.

Following his July 2018 transfer from Watford, he made 135 league appearances for the Toffees, scoring 43 goals.

Richarlison was acquired by the Hornets for £11.5 million in 2017 from the Brazilian team Fluminense.

Richarlison, who could play as a central striker or as a wide attacker, finished as Everton’s joint-top scorer in all competitions in his first two seasons on Merseyside. He also reached double figures in three of his four seasons with the club.

He made his senior international debut as a second-half substitute in Brazil’s 2-0 victory over the United States in September 2018. Since then, he has made 36 appearances and scored 14 goals.

He was selected for the 23-man team for the Copa America in 2019, and he scored in the championship match as Brazil won the competition for the first time since 2007.

He also participated in the Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympics, where his team won the gold medal and he finished the competition as the tournament’s top scorer with five goals.

As they get ready for a season in which they have qualified for the Champions League, Tottenham has added the forward.

They have already acquired Croatian winger Ivan Perisic on a free transfer from Inter Milan, Brighton midfielder Yves Bissouma, and England goalkeeper Fraser Forster on a free transfer after the 34-year-old departed Southampton.

Everton thanked Richarlison for his dedication and service during his tenure with the team in a statement.
