Richarlison is set to join Tottenham Hotspur after the North London club reached agreement with Premier League rivals Everton over the Brazil striker's transfer.

The 25-year-old is believed to have already agreed personal terms with Spurs and is set to undergo a medical in his native Brazil before the deal is finalised.

According to several UK reports, the fee for Richarlison is £50 million guaranteed plus add-ons.

The striker has been a key target for Spurs manager Antonio Conte, who wants to add more depth to his attack with the club over reliant on Harry Kane and Son Heung-min.

Tottenham have already backed Conte during the transfer window with the signings of Croatian winger Ivan Perisic, midfielder Yves Bissouma and a new back-up goalkeeper in Fraser Forster.

Richarlison joined Everton in 2018 and played a key role in helping the Toffess avoid relegation last season, scoring 10 times as the Frank Lampard's side secured their Premier League status with a game to spare.

By contrast, Spurs finished fourth and a return to Champions League football under Conte who revived the club's fortunes after replacing Nuno Espirito Santo last November.

According to British media reports, Everton need to complete the sale on Thursday to help balance the books with their financial year ending on June 30.

Everton have posted £372m losses over the last three years. Leeds and relegated Burnley are thought to have written to the Premier League to question how Everton have complied with Financial Fair Play.

Premier League rules state that clubs can lose £150m over a three-year period, but those regulations were relaxed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
