  • Tottenham Hotspur has been one of the most busiest clubs in the 2022 summer transfer window and they are still in it
  • Spurs have agreed a deal in fee with Everton for a move of star forward Richarlison to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium
  • At the same time, Spurs have also agreed on a season-long loan deal with Barcelona for central defender Clement Lenglet

There is growing confidence that Richarlison will be a Tottenham player by the weekend, this is after Everton and Tottenham Hotspurs clubs both agreed on a fee for the move of the Brazilian.

The Everton and Brazil forward has emerged as Spurs’ top attacking target this summer transfer window as Antonio Conte looks to build a squad capable of improving on last season’s fourth-place finish.

Reports state that the deal between the two clubs has reached its final stages. The transfer fee has been agreed and personal terms are all but done, with Richarlison set to complete a medical over the next few days.

Midfielder Harry Winks is also expected to swap Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for Goodison Park, even if that move isn’t directly included in the Richarlison transfer agreement.

Richarlison will set Spurs back £60m ($72.7m), making him their most expensive signing ever, eclipsing the £55m ($66.7m) they forked out for Tanguy Ndombele in 2019. He is expected to complete a move to north London by the weekend.

Tottenham have also been linked with a move for Anthony Gordon while Steven Bergwijn has been tipped to go the other way, but these deals are more complicated.

Once he signs, Richarlison will become Tottenham’s fourth signing of the summer following completed deals for Fraser Forster, Ivan Perisic and Yves Bissouma.

They have also reached an agreement for Barcelona centre back Clement Lenglet to join on loan, having previously target defensive stars like Alessandro Bastoni and Pau Torres. It is believed the deal will include an option-to-buy clause.

In other news still inside Tottenham Hotspur stadium, the club has reached an agreement with Barcelona over the loan signing of central defender Clement Lenglet, SportsLeo understands.

Spurs have been on the lookout for a left-sided centre-back all window and after seeing a move for Inter’s Alessandro Bastoni fall through they turned their attention to Lenglet.

Things have progressed significantly since then and it has now been reported that Tottenham have agreed a one-season loan deal with Barça. It is believed that the deal also includes an option-to-buy clause.

Spurs have beaten off competition from both Marseille and Roma to secure his signature, with Lenglet agreeing to the move after being informed that he has no future at Camp Nou.

After a bright start to his time at Barcelona, Lenglet’s career has stalled more recently with the defender making just a handful of La Liga appearances since Xavi took over as manager.

He is set to become Spurs’ fourth signing of the summer after Ivan Perisic, Yves Bissouma and Fraser Forster – though the club are also hopeful of confirming Richarlison’s arrival soon.
