Everton Face Fight To Keep Richarlison As Two European Giants Gain Interest

Everton talisman Richarlison is rumoured to be leaving Goodison Park.

According to the Daily Mail, his future with the Toffees remains uncertain as European giants Real Madrid and Paris Saint Germain have gained interest in the Brazilian international. Tottenham are also said to be interested in the 25-year-old.

The forward scored six goals in the clubs’ final nine games to keep Everton afloat, including the equaliser in their comeback win over Crystal Palace to grant them safety.

Richarlison made the move to Everton after a season in the Premier League at Watford under then boss Marco Silva. The fee raised concern amongst fans, with the potential of it rising to £50m.

Since, he’s been arguably Everton’s most consistent and passionate player - scoring 53 goals in 152 games in five years with the club. He bagged the opener in their first win away at Anfield since 1999, writing himself into Evertonian folklore.

The Toffees will be under no pressure to sell him with two years left on his contract, but when European giants come calling - especially in Spain - its easy to see why his head would be turned.

Real Madrid already have a Brazilian contingent within their forward line in Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo Goes, with manager Carlo Ancelotti already developing a strong relationship with Richarlison in his time on Merseyside.

PSG look set to lose Neymar Jr after keeping hold of Kylian Mbappe, and a move to the French capital would offer Richarlison the chance to feature with Lionel Messi.

The most interesting move could be Spurs, who under Antonio Conte could have a system the Brazilian would thrive in.
