Fabrizio Romano, a player transfer expert, has revealed that Tottenham have completed the signing of Brazilian star Richarlison from Everton for over £50m.
A well-known Italian journalist wrote on his Twitter account: Tottenham Hotspur have signed Richarlison on an indefinite contract. An initial amount of £50m plus variables has been agreed upon (amount unspecified).”
Tottenham have signed Richarlison on a permanent contract, let’s go! The first part of the documents has now been signed with Everton, after full agreement on personal terms. 🚨⚪️🇧🇷 #TFFC

The BBC and Sky Sports said Everton had to close the deal on Thursday to determine the budget for the fiscal year ending June 30 (today).
Everton have lost £372m in the last three years.
Premier League rules say clubs could lose £105m over three years before restrictions are lifted due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Richarlison, 25, joined Everton from Watford in 2018 for £50m.
The Samba Dancer scored 53 goals in 152 games for Everton, including 6 goals in the last nine matches of last season, to contribute to the Merseyside club’s survival in the English Premier League.
A move to Tottenham will satisfy Richarlison’s Champions League ambitions, but he will have to face serious competition to establish himself and play regularly in the presence of attacking duo Harry Kane and South Korean Son Heung-min.
Spurs, under Italian coach Antonio Conte, have signed a free deal during the current transfer market with Croatian striker Ivan Perisic from Italy’s Inter, goalkeeper Fries Forster from Southampton and financial midfielder Yves Bisuma from Brighton.
