We’ve heard a few links about a potential Richarlison move to Chelsea in recent weeks – not exactly convincing sources but certainly enough to get us thinking about how the move might work and how much he would improve us.
But just as soon as it started, it seems that move is off the table. According to well connected Brazilian journalist Bruno Andrade says Everton are negotiating with Tottenham over a £60m move for the striker, now that the Toffees have avoided relegation.

Realistically, Chelsea probably weren’t ever too deeply in the race for him – there’s no point in getting too deep into negotiations until we have a buyer for Romelu Lukaku – but if we do manage to shift the Belgian, that’s another big option off the table.
Spurs are doing their business early, and they’re buying good players, AND we all know how good a manager Antonio Conte is. Are you worried yet?
