Richarlison has agreed personal terms with Tottenham ahead of his move from Everton.
The Brazilian striker is looking increasingly likely to leave Goodison Park this summer and Spurs are currently leading that race.
The North London club can offer him Champions League football and the chance to work under veteran manager Antonio Conte.
Bill Kenwright and Daniel Levy, the chairman of Everton and Tottenham respectively, were seen having dinner together, with a transfer speech possibly the hot topic of conversation.
And transfer expert fabrice romano adds that negotiations have reached a new stage with Richarlison and his representatives agreeing the personal terms of a long-term contract with Spurs.
Romano adds that Spurs will hold another meeting with the Toffees to finalize the deal.
Reports earlier this week suggested Spurs wanted a double raid from the Toffees to sign Richarlison and Anthony Gordon.
Everton are believed to be unwilling to let Gordon go but Harry Winks could be heading in the opposite direction.

Everton are believed to want around £50m for Richarlison, who is heading into the final year of his contract.
He may not be the only addition to Tottenham shortly, with set-pieces coach Gianni Vio set to join Conte’s staff.
The 69-year-old former banker has previously worked for several teams including Italy at Euro 2020, Catania, AC Milan, Leeds, SPAL and Brentford.
He claims to have mastered 4,830 different set piece routines.
