Tottenham complete signing of £60m Richarlison

Tottenham completed the signing of Richarlison from Everton on a five-year deal for a fee that could reportedly rise to £60 million ($73 million) on Friday.The Brazilian international will add greater depth to the Spurs forward line, although he has a tough task ahead to dislodge

either Harry Kane or Son Heung-min from his two favoured positions up front and on the left of the attack. Tottenham will pay an initial £50 million fee with a further £10 million in

performance-related bonuses. Richarlison becomes Spurs' fourth signing of the transfer

window after Croatian winger Ivan Perisic, midfielder Yves Bissouma and goalkeeper Fraser Forster. The London club have heavily backed manager Antonio Conte after the Italian secured Champions League football next season. Despite staying up, Everton were still under

pressure to sell due to financial fair play requirements. The Merseyside club have posted £372m in losses over the last three years.
