Richarlison has sent Tottenham fans his first message since signing on the dotted line of a £60million transfer.

Antonio Conte’s Spurs have sealed the striker’s capture from Everton to add to their earlier summer signings of Ivan Perisic, Fraser Forster and Yves Bissouma.

After undergoing his medical in Brazil, Richarlison is yet to travel to the capital to pose with his new shirt or visit the training complex.

Therefore, he sent a social media message on Friday night to herald the biggest move of his career.

He told fans: “Hi, it’s Richarlison. I’m so happy to sign for Tottenham. See you [soon] and come on you Spurs!”

Everton are considering a bid for Watford striker Emmanuel Dennis as Richarlison’s replacement, Standard Sport understands.

In a fond farewell to the Toffees, the 25-year-old recently posted on his Twitter page: “It’s very difficult to say goodbye to a place that has become my home; fans who welcomed as if I were one of them; and a club that treated me kindly and helped me develop my sense of community and empathy.

“Not all the love I have is enough to thank you. Love you!”
