Arsenal Set To Be Rejected By Richarlison As He Wants Champions League Football

Richarlison has reportedly told Everton that he wants to leave the club, but he won't move to Arsenal this summer, after they missed out on the Champions League.

It was not a good season for the Toffees, and the scenes at the end of the season when they confirmed their Premier League survival spoke of relief more than anything else.

Frank Lampard has a job on his hands to make sure that they don't end up in a similarly perilous position next season, but he's likely to have to do it without one of his main goal threats.

Speaking recently, Richarlison made it pretty clear that he's ready to leave Goodison Park, suggesting he's told the club of his plans, even though it would be tough to leave.

According to the Sun, the Brazilian has confirmed to Frank Lampard that he wants to move away and he wants to play in Europe's top competition.

Arsenal had been linked with the forward, as Mikel Arteta chases a player to replace Alexandre Lacazette, and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

They had been linked with Manchester City's Gabriel Jesus, who is expected to leave the champions due to the arrival of Erling Haaland this summer.

However, missing out on the top four is expected to cost the Gunners on their top targets, which was obviously all to do with the fixture list, and Richarlison could be another of those who will move elsewhere.

As well as saying the 25-year-old doesn't want to move to the Emirates Stadium, the report also says that he is eyeing a move to PSG this summer.

Chelsea and Real Madrid have also been linked with the forward, though the Blues are also considering a move for Raheem Sterling from City.

Real are potentially looking for a forward after missing out on Kylian Mbappe, although they might decide against strengthening upfront, especially as they're expected to be spending £85.3 million on midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni.

Richarlison scored 10 goals for Everton in their disappointing campaign, as well as providing five assists for his teammates, but his most memorable contributions were off the pitch.

The former Watford man is a fan favourite in the blue half of Merseyside for his goading of the red half, as he particularly enjoyed winding Liverpool up.

Their failure to win the Premier League or Champions League was of particular amusement to Richarlison, even if it was pointed out how his team nearly got relegated.
