Richarlison has sent a clear message to Everton ahead of the summer transfer window, amidst rumours he is leaving Goodison Park.
The Brazilian was pivotal in the Toffees’ survival but clearly has his ambitions set higher than the Merseyside club.
He scored six goals in their final nine games, including the equaliser against Crystal Palace in their famous 3-2 comeback.
Speaking to the media, Richarlison has said he has made it very clear to his employers about his future.
"When we talk about changing clubs it's a little bit complicated, due to the history I have there at Everton," he said. "The fans like me a lot. And when there are these talks about changing clubs, I feel like... that I don't have anything to say. But I made myself clear to the board, I have talked with Frank Lampard as well. He knows what I want.
"So, no matter what happens, it won't disturb me at the national team, it won't be a problem at the World Cup. I am totally focused at football so, no matter where I am, I will be playing my football with joy.
"We will see... Let's wait this month. I am focused here at the national team now and let's wait this month, the talk with my staff and (Everton's) board to see what they will decide."
