Chelsea Squad Make 'Fiery' Richarlison Transfer Decision Amid £50 Million Valuation

Member of the Chelsea squad have given Thomas Tuchel the green light to make a summer swoop for Everton forward Richarlison, according to reports.

The 25-year-old is the subject of interest from Chelsea this summer as they look to add to their attacking line once the departure of Romelu Lukaku to Inter Milan is confirmed.

Richarlison is valued at £50 million by Everton and is believe he is keen to leave Frank Lampard's side.

Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are showing interest this summer, but with Champions League football and the Blues needing a new forward, the Brazilian could prefer a move to Stamford Bridge.

A decision on whether Chelsea would pursue a move is down to Tuchel and the board, led by Todd Boehly who is the club's interim sporting director.

But the club have been given the green light by many senior stars in the dressing room, according to Andy Dillon.

He has emerged as the key signing among senior players, who like the attacker's characteristic aggression and tenacity.

Last month, Richarlison provided an update on his future at Goodison Park confirming talks had already been held with the Everton hierarchy.

"I've already made it clear to the board," he said last month.

"I've already talked to 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. When we talk about leaving I'm a little speechless."

Raheem Sterling and Ousmane Dembele are on interest to Chelsea in the attack, while target Christopher Nkunku has penned a two-year contract extension at RB Leipzig.

Sterling is valued at around £60 million, while Dembele would be available on a free transfer when his Barcelona contract expires next summer if he doesn't agree a new deal.

Dembele's preference is to remain in Spain which could see Chelsea make a move for Richarlison if they require another forward and see him as the right fit.

The Frenchman's entourage said earlier this week: "Dembele wants to stay because the coach loves him, the player feels happy in Barcelona and is used to it.

"He is in his prime years, hence, the club's offer should not be far from the other offers we have."

It's still very early days in the summer transfer window. Chelsea have their targets, it's now just a matter of time of when they will act.
