The new Spurs signing hopes to make an immediate impact at the north London side.

Richarlison has opened up on his ambitions at Tottenham ahead of his first campaign under Antonio Conte.

The Brazilian star left Everton to join the Spurs on a £60million deal. Having played a key role in the Toffees’ relegation escape last season, Richarlison sets his goals much higher at his new club.

“Antonio Conte is putting together a great team to be able to compete in all competitions,” he told Tottenham’s website.

“The coach will prepare us very well for this because there are many competitions, and now we have to be focused as much as possible. 

“So, I think we have everything to make great competition, and in the end, we have everything to lift a trophy.”

Richarlison scored 53 goals and provided 14 assists in his 152 appearances for Everton. The dream of playing in the Champions League convinced the 25-year-old to end his spell at Goodison Park.

“I remember when I was in Brazil and the offer came from Tottenham, I couldn’t believe it. And after I signed the contract, even more so,” he added.

“When I arrived here, it gave me a chill in my stomach to see my new team-mates and a new home.

“Now, it’s about working with the great coach I have, with great team-mates too. I hope to make history here in this shirt.

“I always said it was my dream to play in the Champions League, and now this dream will come true. And let’s see what will happen.

“All the players dream of playing in this great competition, so I think when the time comes, I’ll be quite emotional.”
