Tottenham chasing Everton trio as Antonio Conte plans rebuild

Tottenham are keeping a close eye on the relegation battle as they line up a move for a trio of Everton stars.

The Toffees currently sit two points clear of the drop zone, with a game in hand on Leeds United who occupy 18th. As a result, it seems unlikely that they will now be relegated, but it certainly remains a possibility with six points still to play for.

Either way, there is set to be a fire sale at Goodison Park, with financial issues meaning that Everton are currently operating well outside of their legal means (according to financial fair play).

And, if The Telegraph is to be believed, it is a fire sale that Antonio Conte and co. are keen to take advantage of, with all of Ben Godfrey, Richarlison and Anthony Gordon on Spurs’ summer wishlist.

‘Tottenham have been closely watching Everton’s survival bid and have an interest in Richarlison, Anthony Gordon and Ben Godfrey ahead of the next window’, they report.

Richarlison is widely expected to depart this summer, though where his next destination will be remains a mystery. However, the other two are young homegrown players that would likely fetch a premium fee, leading to a potential bidding war that Spurs may not want to get caught up in.

Where would they fit in?

However, any move in this ilk would surely prevent a move for Gordon, who is also a wide option.

Looking further back, Ben Godfrey could well slot into Conte’s back three, though typically he plays on the right side of central defence, which is currently occupied by Cristian Romero. A move would certainly strengthen their squad, however.
