One “target” that Villa fans can cross off of their lists for good.

Tottenham Hotspur look set to finally put an Aston Villa transfer link to bed as Everton striker Richarlison undergoes a medical with the North London club today.

According to the Athletic, personal terms have been agreed and the Brazilian forward will link up with Antonio Conte’s side for a fee in the region of £50million plus £10million of add-ons.

The Brazilian was heavily rumoured in the early days with a move to Villa Park and despite the claret and blue being favourites for his signature with the bookmakers all the way up until last week - it appears they were just that - rumours.

BirminghamWorld were told definitively last week that there was absoloutely no interest in bringing the striker to the West Midlands but things have finally been put to bed for good as the 25-year-old gets ready to put pen-to-paper with Tottenham.

And in fairness, for all Villa’s richness, they were never going to spend that much money on a forward with Danny Ings and Ollie Watkins already in the building.

Steven Gerrard is however still looking to add strength in that area this summer and a move for former Liverpool and Barcelona man Luis Suarez remains a possibility.
