And he’s already proven he’s a hit with fans, starting with two goals and as many assists in eight games in all competitions.

Spurs weren’t the only team for the ex-Watford ace as Chelsea failed to hijack his move to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Even Arsenal were interested in the 2019 Copa America winner after making contact with the Toffees.

But Richarlison, who scored twice in Brazil’s 3-0 win over Ghana on Friday night, has said only Spurs are ready to match Everton’s asking price.

Richarlison, quoted by Goal during the international break, also addressed the role Conte played in his transfer.

He said: “I know Chelsea have made an offer and I think Arsenal have also contacted Everton to ask about my situation.

“But Spurs came in and paid the fee, you know? As simple as that.

“Everton had to sell some players to avoid a financial fair play issue and the negotiations were very short to be honest.

“I was on holiday in Brazil when I heard that Tottenham had made an offer to Everton.

“I was happy because they are a huge team.

“Then it was just a matter of the clubs negotiating a deal and luckily everything went well.

“Antonio Conte called me during the negotiations and expressed how much he wanted me on board – that was crucial for my decision.”

Richarlison will try to show Arsenal what they’re missing in next week’s North London derby.

A win at the Emirates for the visitors would see Conte’s side overtake the Gunners at the top of the Premier League table.
