Tottenham have simultaneously been praised for making an inspired signing as well as fired a warning he could soon outgrow them and wouldn’t look out of place at two European giants.

When fully fit, Tottenham’s forward line is the envy of many. Harry Kane continues to be among the world’s best centre-forwards and when his domestic career is all said and done, is likely to have surpassed Alan Shearer as the Premier League’s all-time top scorer. Kane (195) currently trails Shearer (260) by 65.

Son Heung-min was recently named by Mauricio Pochettino as probably his best signing while in north London. Dejan Kulusevski has been a revelation since arriving from Juventus, while Richarlison is a constant threat and is thriving at the World Cup for Brazil.

The latter arrived in a £50m deal from Everton last summer that could hit £60m pending add-ons. He’s currently leading the line for Brazil in Qatar and with Gabriel Jesus now sidelined through injury, will remain Tite’s focal point for the rest of the tournament.

However, despite only joining Spurs mere months ago, PSV Eindhoven’s director of football, Marcel Brands, has talked up a move to an even bigger club.

Brands knows Richarlison well having been the man who brought the 25-year-old to Everton in 2018. Brands was the Director of Football at Goodison Park at the time.

The Dutchman reckons Richarlison has literally everything any top class striker needs in his locker. He also named two European powerhouses Richarlison wouldn’t look out of place at if joining.

Richarlison at perennial Champions League contenders?

“He has everything to be a top striker,” said Brands (via the Express). “He has length, speed, he is agile, can play in all positions in attack and is technically good.

“He can head exceptionally well, has tremendous jumping power and excellent timing in the air. He is also someone who works very hard for the team and still gets his return.

“Every goal he celebrates like it’s the winning one in the World Cup final, you see that at Tottenham too.

“That’s why he plays matches, to score goals. People often forget, but he works really hard. He is everything you want in a striker.

“He has become a man as a young player. He was already physically strong but has become much stronger and his will to score has developed even further.

“He could be playing at Paris Saint-Germain or Bayern Munich as early as tomorrow.”

Bayern, PSG both hunting new forwards

Bayern Munich are on the hunt for a new centre-forward in 2023 having failed to adequately replace Robert Lewandowski last summer.

Harry Kane is admired in Bavaria, though there’s no appetite whatsoever for Spurs to sell their talisman.

PSG, meanwhile, may wind up losing Kylian Mbappe in the coming years.

Mbappe tends to play centrally in Paris when flanked by Lionel Messi and Neymar. However, PSG are fully aware the French megastar’s future could lay in a bigger league and have already begun sounding out replacements.

While Richarlison is yet to be seriously linked with either Bayern or PSG, Brands is certainly of the belief he’s of the quality those two clubs require.
