Surely the end of the road for N'Koudou if Tottenham sign Richarlison?

Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly eyeing a move to sign Watford winger Richarlison this summer but could a move for the fleet-footed Brazilian have ramifications for a Spurs player on the fringes of Mauricio Pochettino's squad?

The Daily Mirror claims Pochettino's side are monitoring the 20-year-old speed machine, who has leapt on to the Premier League scene with aplomb - scoring four goals and adding three assists in 12 games for the Hornets.

Watford signed the Brazil Under-20 international from Fluminense for £11.2million, with their number 11 putting pen to paper on a five-year deal but just three months into his move to England, he already has admirers.

However, Spurs' gain in signing Richarlison would prove to be another player's loss, with Tottenham speed machine Georges N'Koudou already way down the pecking order in north London.

Speed machine N'Koudou, 22, has managed just 46 minutes of first-team football with Spurs this season, coming on as a substitute against APOEL Nicosia in the Champions League, Bournemouth in the Premier League as well as Barnsley and West Ham in the Carabao Cup.

The likes of Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen, Moussa Sissoko and Son Heung-Min are all above the six-time France Under-21 international in the pecking order under Pochettino.

Adding Richarlison to the Spurs squad would see N'Koudou drop down the rankings even further. With his development coming to a standstill, surely it is time for the winger to say goodbye to Spurs in order to save his career?

A loan move in the January transfer window back to his home country seems like the best option, in an attempt to prove to Pochettino or any other interested parties that he is worth a shot. But even without Richarlison, it seems as though his Tottenham days are numbered.
