Tottenham Hotspur have completed the signing of Brazil striker, Richarlison. from Everton on a five-year contract believed to be worth more than £60 million.
The 25-year-old scored 10 goals and provided five assists as he aided Everton to avoid relegation last season.
He scored 43 goals in 135 league appearances for Everton, following a move from Watford in July 2018.
The Hornets had signed Richarlison for £11.5 million from Brazilian side, Fluminense, in 2017.
Playing either as a wide attacker or central striker, Richarlison finished as Everton’s joint-top scorer across all competitions in his first two seasons on Merseyside, reaching double figures in three of the four seasons he spent with them.
The 25-year-old becomes Tottenham’s fourth summer signing after Fraser Forster, Ivan Perisic and Yves Bissouma.
Tottenham are also closing in on a loan deal for Clement Lenglet from Barcelona, while they are in advanced talks with Middlesbrough to sign defender Djed Spence.
