Tottenham Hotspur want to sign Everton striker Richarlison.

At least that’s what the Brazilian media has been reporting for the past 12 hours or so.

According to UOL in South America, the Brazil international is on Tottenham’s radar after deciding he wanted to leave Goodison Park after a horrific season for the Toffees, who are one point above the relegation zone.

It’s no surprise that the former Watford striker – who cost the Blues £50m [BBC Sport] – wants to leave Merseyside, given the club’s struggles this season.

But could he join Spurs? Well, potentially.

However, the last 12 months have been difficult for the 24-year-old, who has scored just six Premier League goals this season.

In fact, he’s made headlines for the wrong reasons more consistently than for the right reasons over the past year.

Even Gary Neville butchered him last April for “selfish” behavior, netting a free-kick from Lucas Digne and sending his effort well over the crossbar.

Neville told Sky Sports at the time: ‘I don’t like it. I never liked that. Especially when he’s not ready to take free-kicks, which he obviously isn’t as Digne told him. There’s an element of selfishness in that, I’m not in the mood.

There is definitely a selfishness in Richarlison.

Then again, you could say the same about a lot of great players.

Not that the Everton striker is a great player, but he’s only 24 and he could be much better if surrounded by better players.

And there’s no doubt that Tottenham have a better quality of football in the squad – let alone manager, like Antonio Conte – than Everton at the moment.
