Fabrizio Romano has shed more light on Richarlison’s summer move to Tottenham and clarified reports of interest from Arsenal and Chelsea. Richarlison’s quotes during the international break proved that Chelsea did want to sign the Brazilian in the summer. Of course, it was Spurs who sealed the deal, with Richarlison himself admitting that a conversation with Antonio Conte influenced his decision.

“Arsenal requested information; there was no official negotiation.” It was all about the manager, as Conte was very interested in him, and, of course, Champions League football.” Richarlison is off to a good start in North London. Arsenal won’t be too upset because they signed Gabriel Jesus instead, who has had a fantastic start himself. TBR Opinion: Richarlison I’m glad he chose the Spurs. Richarlison just seems to fit in at Tottenham, and in retrospect, he’s probably pleased with his decision. Chelsea and Arsenal are both excellent clubs in their own right. However, the intensity with which Conte gets his Spurs players to play, as well as Richarlison’s own style of play, appear to suit everyone here. Certainly, the Brazilian has gotten off to a good start in the capital. The time has come for Richarlison to kick and demonstrate that he can continue to score goals and contribute to the Spurs’ cause. A good start means nothing if you can’t maintain it, and Conte will be pushing him throughout the season. Do you have anything to say about this article?
