Everton star tells agent to find him a new club ahead of summer transfer window
Everton forward Richarlison has reportedly told his agent to find him a move away from Goodison Park in the summer transfer window, according to Football.Insider.
The 24 year old Brazilian has stood out in a mediocre side so far this season, scoring six goals and providing 4 assists in 23 appearances across the campaign. But, Richarlison has failed to propel his side up the table, with the Toffees sitting precariously above the relegation zone.
A win over Manchester United somewhat eased their fears of slipping out of the top flight, but with eight games left of the season they remain only three points above the drop zone, although they do have a game in hand on Burnley below them.
And, for the man who tops both the goal scoring and assists charts for Frank Lampard’s side, it is clearly far too close for comfort, and a far cry from what he signed for in 2019, when the Merseyside outfit splashed out £50 million for his services.
The report claims that ‘a recruitment source has told Football Insider that Richarlison has told his representatives he wants them to explore a move going into the summer window’.
Everton to sell anyway?
Everton would possibly have looked to part ways with Richarlison anyway, with the club in significant financial trouble and almost certain to sell one of the Brazilian and fellow big-ticket item Dominic Calvert-Lewin.
It is also possible that they offload them both, in a bid to ensure that more money is available to be invested in the squad which consistently looks as though it needs an overhaul despite repeated attempts to do so.
Should they decide to sell Richarlison, there will be no shortage of suitors, with PSG and Barcelona just two clubs previously credited with an interest in the Brazilian.
