It has previously been reported by transfer insider Dean Jones that Everton are set to lose at least one of Richarlison or Dominic Calvert-Lewin, with both of their futures seemingly up in the air with the latter being lined up by Newcastle United and the former liked by Manchester United.
Will Richarlison leave in the summer?
While Calvert-Lewin has only played 14 league games this season, Richarlison has stepped up and replaced him effectively with eight league goals and four assists including a very important winner against Chelsea, so his performances have not gone unnoticed.
Romano has dropped a worrying update on Richarlison.
(17:50) “This summer will be an opportunity to sign him [Richarlison] so many clubs could be on him but I see Richarlison leaving the club because honestly, he’s prepared to look at proposals but at the moment it’s still not advanced. So I don’t want to say to Everton fans that it’s already over, but the message is he’s exploring the market.”
TIF Thoughts on Richarlison…
The Brazilian international has a contract until the summer of 2024 so Everton are certainly under no pressure to cash in on the striker, but after rejecting advances from Barcelona in the past and PSG showing an interest last summer, there is sure to be plenty of suitors after Richarlison showed he can lead the line on his own this season.
Given his pedigree within the Brazi set-up, Premier League experience and his impressive record in front of goal with 46 goals in 171 appearances in the top flight, the Toffees will be able tore coup a large chunk of money if they do decide to part ways with Richarlison, but it would take some replacing given how much of a regular he’s been since joining back in 2018.
