Everton forwarder Richarlison has sent a transfer signal to Thomas Tuchel admitting summer transfer
However, Richarlison has made it clear he will leave Everton this summer transfer window
The Brazilian international is open to joining Chelsea this summer transfer
Everton forward Richarlison has confirmed he is considering his future amid interest from Tottenham, Chelsea, and Arsenal
The 25-year-old has become a cult hero at Goodison Park since his transfer from Watford for an initial £35million in 2018
Played a pivotal role during the club’s relegation battle this season, with six goals in nine games to help them to safety.
However, asked about his next move while on international duty, he said:
‘I’ve already made it clear to the board. I’ve already talked to (manager Frank) Lampard too, with my agents and they know what I want. Let’s wait for June
‘Now I can’t talk, because when we talk about leaving a club I’m kind of like this, because of the history I have at Everton, the affection that the fans have for me. hen we talk about leaving I’m a little speechless.’
Paris Saint-Germain would have been keen on Richarlison if Kylian Mbappe had left for Real Madrid
Moreover, Mauricio Pochettino’s French giants are now assessing cheaper options.
Sportsmail reported last week that a number of European clubs are showing interest in the 34-cap Brazil international, with Antonio Conte’s Spurs are eyeing the situation carefully and Spanish side Los Blancos also credited with interest
It remains to be seen if Everton will entertain letting Richarlison leave given his importance to the team
He has two years to run on his existing deal so Everton is under no immediate pressure to make a decision on his future
Particularly if he has the opportunity to join a team that could offer him a chance of challenging for major trophies.
