Everton want in-excess of £50million if they are to sell Tottenham target Richarlison this summer.
As Sportsmail revealed last month the Brazil international is open to leaving Goodison Park this summer, with Spurs among the teams interested in the forward.
Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain have also been credited with an interest in Richarlison – but sources have indicated that Tottenham are currently the most serious about trying to sign the South American.

However, the Toffees will demand a high price on their forward and will not consider anything less than £50million.
Everton are aware of Tottenham’s interest in Richarlison and are open to engaging in further talks with Spurs.
Indeed, there is a belief a deal is achievable. Richarlison would find the opportunity to play Champions League football with Spurs next season too good to turn down.
But the biggest obstacle towards a deal appears to be the Merseyside club’s valuation.
The South American has two years to run on his existing deal so Everton are under no immediate pressure to sell, though their highly-publicised financial situation could become a factor as head coach Frank Lampard tries to strengthen his squad this summer.
Richarlison emerged as one of the Toffees’ survival heroes as they successfully avoided relegation in their penultimate game of the season against Crystal Palace.
Richarlison scored six goals in nine games to help ensure safety, but the Merseyside club are now bracing themselves for the prospect of losing the South American ahead of next season.

Meanwhile, former Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino is leaving PSG after reaching an agreement with the French champions over his exit.
Pochettino held talks with club chiefs last week where it was decided a separation would be best for all parties.
Zinedine Zidane is PSG’s first choice to replace the Argentine, but Jose Mourinho, now at Roma, and Nice boss Christophe Galtier are under consideration.
