Tottenham Hotspur Sets High Asking Price for Richarlison Amid Saudi Pro League Interest

Tottenham Hotspur has reportedly disclosed their asking price for Richarlison as clubs from the Saudi Pro League express interest in the Brazilian forward. Richarlison, who made the switch from Everton to Spurs 18 months ago in a high-profile £60 million deal, is now rumored to be a prime target for clubs in Saudi Arabia’s lucrative Pro League. Despite his hefty price tag, the 26-year-old has faced challenges in making a significant impact at Tottenham, raising questions about his future with the club.

Since joining Tottenham, Richarlison has failed to live up to the high expectations set by his substantial transfer fee. With only five goals in 47 appearances, the Brazilian forward has yet to establish himself as a consistent goal-scorer for the team. As the January transfer window approaches, rumors suggest that Richarlison could become the focal point of one of the season’s most significant transfer sagas.

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is reportedly unwilling to let Richarlison leave the club at a discounted rate. According to a recent report from 90min, Levy is set to demand a minimum of £60 million in exchange for the services of the Brazilian forward. This figure aligns with the initial transfer fee paid by Spurs to acquire Richarlison from Everton last summer. The insistence on recouping the full amount highlights Levy’s commitment to securing a fair deal for the club.

Richarlison, currently under contract with Tottenham until the summer of 2027, is reported to earn £90,000 per week, according to Spotrac. This financial information adds another layer to the negotiation process, as potential suitors from the Saudi Pro League weigh the overall cost of acquiring the Brazilian forward.
