Tottenham fans will love Richarlison's Arsenal Instagram message after transfer
It's started already
Tottenham Hotspur fans will absolutely love Richarlison's most recent Instagram post, sharing one of his old posts from 2020 to his story.
The 25-year-old Brazilian became Spurs' fourth signing of the transfer window on Friday, signing for £60million. A number of teams were linked with a move for him, with both Arsenal and Chelsea thought to be keen on securing his signature.
Richarlison, who joins Yves Bissouma, Ivan Perisic and Fraser Forster in arriving at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, made 152 appearances for the Toffees since joining from Watford in 2018 for £40m, scoring 53 goals.
Since his move to Spurs was confirmed, the attacker has been inundated with messages from his former Everton teammates. While reposting several heartfelt messages to his Instagram stories, Richarlison also opted to share one of his old posts from 2020 to his stories.
He shared an image of himself squaring up to Hector Bellerin, with one of his Gunners teammates down on the ground injured.
Unsurprisingly, it has since gone down extremely well with the Tottenham faithful.

He said: I am so happy to sign for Tottenham. See you and come on you Spurs."
