Richarlison has made his availability in the summer transfer window known to a number of London clubs.
The Everton attacker had a good season, scoring 10 goals and assisting five times in 30 appearances for a relegation-threatened side. The Brazilian’s goal against Chelsea secured the Toffees a 1-0 win, while his equalizer in the 3-2 win over Crystal Palace ensured their spot in the Premier League for next season.
Richarlison, who joined Everton for £45 million from Watford in 2018, has been linked with a move away from Goodison Park for several seasons due to his talent. Chelsea, Arsenal, and Tottenham Hotspur have all been linked with a move for the 25-year-old in recent months.
And his comments while on international duty have reignited the speculation, as a move once the transfer window opens appears to be a distinct possibility. “I’ve already made it obvious to the board,” he told the Daily Mail when asked about his next move. I’ve already spoken to [manager Frank] Lampard and my agents, and they are aware of my desires. Let’s see what happens in June.
“Now I can’t speak because, when we talk about leaving a club, I’m kind of like this, because of my history with Everton and the supporters’ fondness for me.” I’m a little speechless when we talk about leaving.”
Everton will not allow Richarlison leave on the cheap, with manager Frank Lampard desperate to keep his finest players in order to avoid relegation next season. However, at 25, the attacker may desire a move to a club where he can compete for cups as well as play in Europe’s top club competitions.
