Saturday 2 July 2022 09:17, UK
Wrapping up the Tottenham transfer news, rumours and gossip in the 2022 summer window.
Tottenham have completed the signing of Everton forward Richarlison in a deal worth £60m, with the Brazil international signing a five-year contract at Spurs.
The north London side will pay an initial £50m with a further £10m in add-ons as Richarlison completed his Spurs medical in Brazil.
The 25-year-old becomes Spurs' fourth summer signing after Fraser Forster, Ivan Perisic and Yves Bissouma.
Tottenham are in advanced talks with Middlesbrough to sign Djed Spence.
Sky Sports News has been told an agreement is getting closer and could be reached by the weekend.
Discussions are centred around an initial fee of £15m plus add-ons.
Tottenham are in talks over a loan deal for Barcelona defender Clement Lenglet but he is not the club's only centre-back target this summer.
A move to Spurs has been described as Lenglet's most likely destination by a source close to negotiations, if the France international is to leave the Nou Camp this summer.
However, an agreement is not yet close, with the 27-year-old not the only centre-back Spurs are making enquiries about as they look to add a left-footer to the back three.
Atletico Madrid have made an offer to sign Tottenham defender Emerson Royal on a season-long loan.
As it stands, Spurs have no intention of allowing Emerson, who joined last summer from Barcelona for £25.8m, to leave.
Atletico tried to sign him last summer, but he opted to join Spurs instead, signing a five-year contract.
Tottenham and Middlesbrough remain apart in their valuations of Djed Spence after the latest round of negotiations.
Officials from both clubs are understood to have met in London on Thursday but were unable to find an agreement. Spurs remain very interested in Spence and the player wants the move, but the north London club are prepared to move on if no deal can be struck and do have other options, including Lens' Jonathan Clauss and Torino's Wilfried Singo.
Sky Sports News has been told PSV's Cody Gakpo is another player Tottenham have asked after.
Raphinha's Leeds team-mate Jack Harrison has been on Spurs' radar for a while but is understood to have a very high valuation, while Sky in Italy have reported that Spurs director of football, Fabio Paratici, has asked about Roma's Nicolo Zaniolo.
Sky in Italy add that Paratici also met with Sampdoria to discuss the possible loan of Bryan Gil, and with Roma to potentially loan centre-back Joe Rodon to Jose Mourinho's side.
Tottenham and Everton are in talks over the transfer of midfielder Harry Winks.
Spurs want a permanent deal, but Everton would prefer a loan with an obligation to buy.
Winks is aware he is not in Tottenham boss Antonio Conte's plans.
Ajax will make another offer for Tottenham winger Steven Bergwijn but Spurs will not entertain bids under £25m.
The Dutch club, who have wanted Bergwijn since January, are set to step up their interest in the 24-year-old after they agreed to sell striker Sebastien Haller to Borussia Dortmund for £30.2m.
Bergwijn wants first-team football ahead of this winter's World Cup in Qatar and is keen to sign for Ajax.
Tottenham believe the Dutchman still has a big future elsewhere.
Brighton midfielder Yves Bissouma has signed for Tottenham on a four-year deal, subject to being granted a work permit.
Sky Sports News understands Spurs will pay an initial £25m for the Mali international, which will potentially rise to £35m with performance-related add-ons.
