Everton's Richarlison Aiming To Be Premier League's Top Scorer
Everton's new star Richarlison means business
The Brazilian striker swapped Premier League allegiances in the summer by signing for Everton from Watford for a whopping £40 million.
He's started like a house on fire at Goodison Park and quickly developing into a fan favourite.
Richarlison bagged a brace on his Everton debut against Wolves, and made it three goals in two games by netting versus Southampton over the weekend.
He's leading the scoring charts along with Manchester City's Sergio Aguero albeit at this early stage.
However, the 21-year-old is setting his sights on becoming the leagues top scorer.
After a season of top flight action in England under his belt, Richarlison feels prepared for the campaign ahead with his new side.
"I feel more prepared, I already know the rhythm and style of the Premier League. That will help me on the way to my goals," he told UOL Esporte.
"I want to be the top scorer of the league, take Everton back to the Champions League and then I'll be in the Brazilian national team."

Some of the most lethal strikers in the world ply their trade in the Premier League. From Harry Kane to Romelu Lukaku, among many, many others. He's got strong competition.
And spots for European football are fiercely contested with Chelsea and Arsenal missing out on a top four place, last season.
As for being selected by Tite, he's left out Gabriel Jesus in his latest squad. That's the kind of competition he's facing.
Will Richarlison achieve any of his targets?
