Transfer Talk: Spurs eye sweet deal for Toffees duo
Tottenham are reportedly preparing a double swoop for Everton pair Richarlison and Anthony Gordon.
Boss Antonio Conte is keen to further bolster his ranks after bringing Ivan Perisic, Yves Bissouma and Fraser Forster to North London this summer.
A forward to provide competition to Harry Kane appears to be high on his list of priorities, with 25-year-old Brazilian Richarlison a key target.
The Italian boss also wants to add young English talent to his ranks and fellow Toffees star Gordon, 21, fits that bill.
Sky Sports report that Everton are anticipating a double bid from Spurs this week.
Departures are expected from Goodison Park this summer as the Merseyside outfit look to comply with financial fair play regulations.
And as one of Everton’s highest value players, Richarlison is believed to be a likely exit — especially after he cast doubt over his future in May.
London rivals Chelsea are said to also be in the race for the 36-cap international, who netted 10 goals to help Frank Lampard's men avoid relegation last season.
But the Liverpool Echo say Everton are keen to keep hold of Gordon, with the academy graduate still having three years to run on his current contract.
Meanwhile, the Evening Standard claim Conte is keen to sign Barcelona defender Clement Lenglet, who Roma also hold an interest in.
