Former Liverpool star Jamie Carragher has predicted Twitter How Everton fans will react when they see Richardson play for Antonio Conte’s Tottenham Hotspur next season.
Tottenham are reportedly set to sign Brazil international forward Richardson from Premier League rivals Everton in the summer transfer window.
Sky Sports has reported that the 25-year-old completed his medical in Brazil before moving from Everton to Tottenham for £60m.
Carragher, the former Liverpool defender, criticized Richardson for going down too easily between the Reds and Everton during last season’s Merseyside derby.
A Sky Sports pundit believes Everton fans will say the same thing about the £110,000-a-week (SalarySport) former Watford star when he leaves for Tottenham next season.

Good signing for Spurs?
In our opinion, Everton forward Richardson would be a good signing for Tottenham Hotspur in the summer transfer window.
Now, of course, £50m is a lot of money to pay for a player who will have to work hard to get into Antonio Conte’s starting lineup at Tottenham, but let’s not forget that Richardson is only 25.
Therefore, there is every reason to believe that he can improve and get better in the years to come.
In addition, the Everton star can play as a centre-forward or out wide and has extensive experience in the Premier League.
In his career so far in the Premier League, Richardson has scored 48 goals in 173 appearances and made 32 major changes.
