Tottenham Hotspur transfer latest: Search for a striker continues at Spurs

by | Jun 20, 2022 | Transfer News | 0 comments

Tottenham Hotspur’s striker search has taken a dramatic turn in recent days, as credible reports suggest that Fabio Paratici is looking towards the Brazilian side of the Premier League for Antonio Conte’s attacking reinforcements, with Richarlison, and Raphinha all being of significant interest to the Italian.

 

Antonio Conte is said to want an attacking player

Antonio Conte is said to want an attacking player with versatility, being able to play across the front three with ease and rotate with Tottenham’s prolific trio of Harry Kane, Heung Min-Son and Dejan Kulusevski, with Spurs fighting on all four fronts next season, most importantly in the UEFA Champions League.

Richarlison and Raphinha at the top of his list

According to Times Sport, Paratici is said to have Richarlison and Raphinha at the top of his list when it comes to his options.

With it not being so ‘under the radar’ now, it seems to show that Daniel Levy and Fabio Paratici have learned from their mistakes with the Luis Diaz transfer in January, where a deal looked very close to completion before Liverpool came in and blew Tottenham’s offer out of the water whilst also offering Champions League football to the Colombian international.

Therefore, we can assume that Tottenham are aiming to complete as many transfers as possible before hitting mainstream media to avoid any further embarrassment, with that being shown by the recent capture of Yves Bissouma, reported only days before the official announcement.

With Brazilians come hefty price tags

With Brazilians come hefty price tags, being evident in the links to Richarlison, and Raphinha, with the asking prices of both players reportedly ranging from £50m to reports of £70m.

With 10 goals and 5 assists in the Premier League last season when appearing in a lacklustre Everton side, Richarlison seems destined to move on from
Everton this summer, with sources in and around Everton stating that a move to Tottenham this window has good chances of happening.

Meanwhile Fabrizio Raphinha has stated that Leeds want North of €55M to sell Raphinha this summer with Spurs joining Barcelona, Arsenal and Chelsea in the ever growing list of admirers of the Brazilian winger.

£150m warchest

With Tottenham’s £150m warchest, this could be deal that gets done with a snap of Paratici’s fingers, with Leeds looking to sell this summer, however, as always, the 20 plates spinning on Paritici’s fingers instead throws everybody of the scent of Tottenham Hotspur’s movement this summer; which is evidently how they want it to be.
