London club held talks with €50m-rated Brazilian forward
London club held talks with Everton attacker Richarlison and planning to make a bid during the summer transfer window. Chelsea need a new top-class forward as Willian and Pedro already up to 30, Eden Hazard heavily linked with Real Madrid and their replacement is necessary. Brazil international is the best option in this situation as he has an impressive campaign and paid big clubs attention. Maurizio set to pay big money for the footballer during this summer. The 21-year-old forward joined the Toffees from Watford last summer with a €40m deal. He became an unchanged figure for the club and scored several important goals since joining.
In this season, Richarlison already played 27 matches, scored 11 goals and made 2 assists in all competition. This is an excellent result and he can do much more with high-class partners. Brazilian attacker is contracted with the English club until 2023 and his release clause is nearly €45m. His price could increase during this campaign and become much more.
Richarlison is a regular member of the national team which is already a big achievement for the footballer. Blues will do everything to add him during the summer transfer window. Chelsea also linked with Juventus winger Douglas Costa, Milan footballer Franck Kessie and PSG midfielder Adrien Rabiot. London club have fantastic results in the Premier League as they are in fifth place in the table and have a great chance to win the tournament. English club have to face Malmo in Europa League playoff next week.
