Spurs planning £50m double raid for Watford pair

Tottenham Hotspur are keen on completing the double signings of Watford pair Richarlison and Abdoulaye Doucoure, according to reports.

Doucoure, the French midfielder, and Brazilian forward Richarlison have been two of Watford’s standout players in 2017-18.

They rank first and second respectively on the Hornets’ scoring charts, while Richarlison also has the most assists in Javi Gracia’s squad.

These performances have caught the eye of Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino, and he is ready to sanction a £50m bid for the pair, according the The Sun.

Richarlison, who was signed from Fluminense for £13m last summer, is considered a back-up option for Harry Kane, while Doucoure has been compared with Tottenham’s superb midfielder Mousa Dembele.
