TOTTENHAM have reportedly been joined by Chelsea in the race to lure Richarlison away from Everton.
Spurs have been heavily linked with a move for the 25-year-old in a potential £51.25million deal.
SunSport reported last week how Thomas Tuchel's Blues side were also interested in the Brazil international.
It has been claimed that the Toffees may cash in on the ex-Watford ace in the next five days as they need to balance the books.
A move to London could be in the offing, with Sky Sports stating that Chelsea are considering rivalling rivals Spurs for his signature.
Chelsea are in the market for a centre-forward after allowing club-record signing Romelu Lukaku to return to Inter Milan on loan.

But they may have to be quick if they wish to secure the player's services.
That is because Spurs are desperate to land Richarlison with Everton bracing themselves for a bid.

According to the Telegraph, Tuchel has opened dialogue with Sterling's camp ahead of a potential bid.
Entering the final 12 months of his contract, Sterling is open to all options — but wants to play regularly in the countdown to the winter World Cup.
But Chelsea have been knocked back in their approach for Juventus centre-back Matthijs de Ligt.
It has been said that the Old Lady have rejected a £34m offer plus either Timo Werner or Christian Pulisic for the Dutch defender.
