Tottenham news: Richarlison buries hatchet with team-mate as Djed Spence transfer expected

Antonio Conte appears to be getting exactly what he wants at Tottenham Hotspur.

After steering the team to a fourth-place finish last season, there has been no sense of Spurs resting on their laurels. Instead, the club have been one of the most active Premier League teams in the transfer market, strengthening all areas of the squad.

On Friday, it was confirmed that Clement Lenglet had completed his loan move from Barcelona to north London, joining Richarlison, Yves Bissouma, Ivan Perisic and Fraser Forster as new signings. According to reports, there may yet be more to come from Spurs in terms of incomings this summer too.

Richarlison and Romero bury the hatchet

Given their respective international allegiances, Brazil forward Richarlison and Argentina defender Cristian Romero have been involved in some feisty battles down the years.

In the Premier League too, there was no love lost. In a 0-0 draw at Goodison Park, the duo clashed over a penalty appeal from Richarlison and then in the return fixture the defender made an especially heavy challenge on the striker in Spurs’ 5-0 win.

However, the pair have been pictured in a somewhat awkward embrace on Richarlison’s first day at Tottenham training, having joined from Everton in a deal worth a potential £60 million. Their hug was greet by cheers from the onlooking players, particularly the Brazilian’s compatriot Lucas Moura.

Spurs to push on for Spence

After agreeing a deal to sell Steven Bergwijn to Ajax, Tottenham are ready to push forward in their efforts to sign Djed Spence from Middlesbrough.

Bergwijn has left Spurs after just two-and-a-half years, with the signings of Richarlison and Dejan Kulusevski pushing him further down the attacking pecking order. It’s expected the £26 million received for the Dutchman will now be put towards the wing-back.

Spence spent last season on loan at Nottingham Forest and was crucial to the team’s successful promotion push. Boro are said to value him as high as £20 million though, a figure Spurs have been reluctant to meet before agreeing to sell Bergwijn.
