Spurs could smash transfer record to sign “terrifying” Richarlison upgrade

It’s set to be an incredibly important summer for Tottenham Hotspur this year as Daniel Levy and Co hunt out the best players to help support Ange postecoglou’s lofty ambitions in North London.

The Australian endured a mixed debut campaign with the club, but with Eurpa league  football secured, there were more positives than negatives.

That said, with six team team scoring more goals than them last season, there is clearly some room for improvement up top, and based on recent reports, they may well get that improvement.

The latest player touted for a move to N17 would be a seismic signing, breaking the club’s transfer record and signalling to the rest of the league that they mean business – although it might not be great news for Richarlison.

Tottenham Hotspur transfer news

According to a recent report from sky sport, Tottenham have made signing a new, versatile forward a ‘priority’ this summer and have identified RB Leipzig’s Loïs Openda as a potential target.

The report claims that no bids or offers have been made thus far and does not mention a potential price, but another report caught offside earlier this year revealed that the German club have placed a massive €100m price tag on the player’s head this summer, which converts to around £84m.

This enormous price is due partly to his impressive form but also because he has a €80m release clause – £68m – which will kick in next summer.

It would be an extraordinary transfer to get over the line, but Spurs have plenty of money to spend, and if they want to help Postecoglou realise his aims in the coming season, then signing Openda would go a long way in doing that, even if it spells trouble for Richarlison.
