Tottenham Hotspur will be hoping to end their run of four Premier League games without a win when they face West Ham United on Thursday evening. 

Having topped the league table after ten matches, the Lilywhites have since lost three times and drawn once, dropping down to fifth in the standings.

Ange Postecoglou will be desperate to see his side return to winning ways against the Hammers, but the Australian will once again be without a number of key players including James Maddison and Micky van de Ven.

In the meantime, one of Spurs’ attackers is reportedly being targeted by Saudi Arabian clubs.

As per 90min, Richarlison remains a target for Pro League sides, despite Tottenham standing firm and being adamant that the player is not for sale.

It is claimed that Spurs would only consider selling the 26-year-old if an offer in excess of £60 million was tabled.

The forward has made 12 appearances across all competitions so far this season, and Postecoglou is said to be reluctant to allow him to depart when the transfer window reopens in January.

Richarlison joined Spurs from fellow Premier League side Everton last summer but has struggled to find his best form since moving to the capital.

Having scored 53 times in 152 games for the Toffees, the Brazil international has scored just five times and provided seven assists in 47 matches for Spurs across all competitions.

Despite the departure of talisman Harry Kane during the recent summer transfer window, Richarlison has failed to establish himself as Spurs’ first choice central striker.

He has primarily been deployed on the left flank so far this term, but a recent spell on the sidelines due to injury has allowed Brennan Johnson to take advantage of a chance in the starting XI.
