Tottenham realise that landing Richarlison from Watford could be difficult in January, as the Hornets are likely to want to keep hold of the 20-year-old attacker.
However, Spurs intend to keep tabs on Richarlison’s progress at Vicarage Road and are already considering making an offer at the end of the season.
Richarlison has enjoyed a remarkable breakthrough since signing for Watford so far, with the winger scoring four times and claiming three assists in 11 Premier League matches.
And Spurs have already been alerted to his talents, with Mauricio Pochettino impressed.
Tottenham have shown a great eye for young talent in recent times, and are keen to bring Richarlison to the club at a time when he can still be developed.
Richarlison is likely to cost a sizeable amount of money, but Spurs are keen to try and knock the price of any transfer down.
As a result Onomah or N’Koudou could be offered to Watford as a sweetener in any deal, and that comes as a big surprise.
Onomah has always been highly regarded at Spurs, and has impressed on a loan spell at Aston Villa this season, but it seems that Pochettino may just deem the 20-year-old to be expendable now.
