Tottenham interested in signing Everton trio amid club’s relegation battle

 

Wolverhampton Wanderers' English defender Conor Coady (2L) stands amongst Everton's English defender Mason Holgate (L) Everton's Brazilian striker Richarlison (2L) and Everton's English midfielder Ben Godfrey during the English Premier League football match between Everton and Wolverhampton Wanderers at Goodison Park in Liverpool, north west England on March 13, 2022.


Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly interested in signing three players from Everton should the Toffees get relegated from the Premier League.

The Telegraph report that defender Ben Godfrey and forwards Richarlison and Anthony Gordon are the names Antonio Conte’s side will look to buy in the summer.

Everton are just a point clear of the drop with just four matches remaining, although they do have a game in hand over relegation rivals Burnley and Leeds.

But even if Frank Lampard’s side do survive, they may well be forced to sell several players in order to offset their huge losses that have built up after six years of excessive spending.

Spurs are set to have a busy summer, with Conte looking to conduct a small overhaul of his squad ahead of what should be his first full season in charge of the north London side.

Richarlison is arguably Everton’s best player, having scored 51 goals in 149 games for the club since 2018, and the Brazilian has previously attracted interest from top clubs such as PSG.

After impressing in a poor Norwich side, centre-back Godfrey has done well at Goodison Park since his move there in 2020 and has been likened to current Spurs player Eric Dier thanks to his versality, with the England international also able to play in midfield and both full-back positions.

Gordon, 21, has enjoyed a breakthrough season at his boyhood club and, like Godfrey, he will be especially appealing to the Lilywhites who need to increase their number of homegrown players.

It is unknown how much money Everton will want for each player, and it is more than likely that Spurs will be forced to offload some of their own stars to afford signing any new ones.

There are several players who have struggled for minutes since Conte’s arrival that are likely to be put up for sale, including midfielder Harry Winks and forwards Lucas Moura and Steven Bergwijn, the latter of whom has previously shared his frustration at a lack of game time.
