Brazilian striker Richarlison on Friday joined Tottenham Hotspur on a five year deal.

“We are delighted to announce the signing of Richarlison from Everton, subject to a work permit,” Spurs announced in a statement on Friday. 

The new contract will see Richarlison play for Spurs until 2027. 

Richarlison, 25, played a crucial role in ensuring Everton survived relegation last season. 

He becomes fourth summer signing for Spurs after Fraser Forster, Ivan Perisic and Yves Bissouma.

In a tweet following his move to the London side on Friday, Richarlison said “It’s very difficult to say goodbye to a place that has become my home, to fans who welcomed me as if I were one of them and a club that treated me kindly and helped me develop my sense of community and empathy,”
