Al-Hilal is considering an offer for Tottenham forward Richarlison. The Brazil centre-forward recently announced that he intends to stay with Spurs next season. But Al-Hilal could persuade Spurs to part ways this summer. According to the Daily Mail, Al-Hilal inquired about Richarlison in January after Neymar's season-ending knee injury, and they plan to make a solid proposal this summer.

As per a report, Richarlison suffered a calf injury, forcing him to withdraw from Brazil's Copa America roster. Manager Dorival Junior told Brazilian media that while the club had not formally confirmed Richarlison's injury, it was serious enough to warrant his withdrawal from Brazil's squad. This setback adds to Richarlison's fitness issues, as he has not yet fully recovered from a knee ailment that has kept him out of action for an extended period of time.

Richarlison's recent injury would keep him from playing alongside his Tottenham colleagues during the final three Premier League games. This implies that his performance versus Liverpool on May 5 might prove to be his final encounter in Tottenham colours, as Al-Hilal, the newly crowned Saudi Pro League champions, are interested in acquiring him in the transfer window in the summer, according to the Daily Mail.

Al-Hilal might make Richarlison as marquee signing for upcoming transfer window

Despite Richarlison's three-year contract, Al-Hilal is hopeful of signing the 27-year-old. While no formal proposal has been made, Tottenham are anticipated to consider bids, particularly considering manager Ange Postecoglou preparing a major squad makeover in the coming transfer window. 

Furthermore, the club, which is funded by the Saudi Public Investment Fund, apparently contacted Tottenham about the Brazilian striker in January, after Neymar's season-ending knee injury. Richarlison's likely exit from Tottenham will mark an important turning point in the player's life, with Al-Hilal providing an attractive opportunity in a growing league. The forward is going to be anxious to regain his health as quickly as possible in order to ensure he can play the maximum number of minutes in the upcoming season, whether in Uk or Saudi Arabia.
