Premier League star “Richarlison” is closer to transferring to Tottenham than to Arsenal.

FOOTBALL NEWS Premier League

Tottenham appears to be ahead of Arsenal in the transfer race for Everton forward Richarlison, according to reports.

The Brazil international has been a top performer at Goodison Park for quite some time, but after the club narrowly avoided relegation last season, he may feel it’s time to move on to greater and better things.

According to Goal, Arsenal has shown interest in Richarlison in the past, but Spurs appear to be ahead of their north London rivals in the race for his signature.

Refer to the tweet below by journalist Ekrem Konur for the most recent information regarding the 25-year-old.

Richarlison could be a great addition to help Antonio Conte build on last year’s success, with the club still needing new players to finish in the top four.

This could prove to be a setback for Arsenal, who also need to make changes up front due to the recent departures of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette and the poor form of Nicolas Pepe.
