NewcastleWorld understands the Magpies were one of the teams to be approached with Edde Howe in the market for a striker.

Spurs, however, have moved to seal Richarlison’s signature, with the 25-year-old set to undergo his medical in Brazil today. Personal terms have been agreed.

Richarlison joined the Toffees in 2018 from Watford for £50m and went to score 53 goals in 152 appearances on Merseyside.

Confirmation of Richarlison’s transger before July 1 (Friday) would assist Everton as they seek to comply with the Premier League’s profit and sustainability rules.

Losses of £372.6m over the past three financial years have raisen questions from Leeds United and Burnley over any potential breaches of league rules.

Tottenham have already signed Fraser Forster and Yves Bissouma this summer, while Everton are poised to sign James Tarkowski on a free transfer.

Newcastle, this week, secured their third signing of the summer with Sven Botman joining Matt Targett and Nick Pope on Tyneside.

The formalities of Botman’s transfer are set to be concluded this week.
