Richarlison remains Saudi Pro League transfer target despite Tottenham stance

Richarlison is a transfer target for clubs in the Saudi Pro League, though it would take a large offer for Tottenham Hotspur to consider a sale in January, 90min understands.

The Brazil international has struggled to find his best form since joining Spurs from Everton in 2022 in a deal that could yet reach £60m if add-ons are met. He has registered just five goals and seven assists in 47 matches across all competitions.

After beginning the 2023/24 season as a centre forward following the sale of Harry Kane, Richarlison has played much of the campaign from the left for Tottenham. However, he underwent groin surgery during November and summer signing Brennan Johnson has looked promising in his place, though he is expected to still feature prominently for an injury-struck Spurs side during the busy festive period.

90min understands that head coach Ange Postecoglou is not in a hurry to write off Richarlison and sanction an exit, but understands that if a significant bid came in it would be hard for the club to turn it down.

Richarlison has been linked with a move to Saudi Arabia in recent months, and though the Pro League are not looking to make many marquee signings during the January window, the 26-year-old is among their current targets.

However, Tottenham are unlikely to agree to a sale unless they are able to recoup at least the total £60m package they spent to bring Richarlison to north London in the first place.

90min reported last month that Spurs are still weighing up whether to make a move for a winger already playing in Saudi Arabia – Al Ittihad’s Jota, who previously worked under Postecoglou at Celtic. Newcastle United are also monitoring his situation.
