Everton: £50m star 'willing to leave' Goodison Park

Everton manager Frank Lampard

Everton star Richarlison has been trying to leave Goodison Park for the “last couple of transfer windows”, according to Daily Star journalist Paul Brown.

The Brazilian forward is being heavily linked with a move away from the Merseyside club, and Brown says he has been eyeing up an exit for a while now.

What is the latest news involving Richarlison?

According to Football Insider, Richarlison has told his agent to find him a new team this summer.

It has not been a good season for Everton, who are currently caught up in a relegation battle, so it does not come as a shock to hear that the 24-year-old is now looking to move on.

Richarlison arrived at Everton from Watford in a £50m deal back in 2018 and could be set to join another Premier League club in a similar big-money transfer.

Brazilian outlet UOL recently claimed that Tottenham have made an approach for Richarlison, while GOAL has reported that Manchester United are also interested in the Toffees attacker.

What has Brown said about Richarlison?

Brown has told GIVEMESPORT that an Everton exit has been on Richarlison’s mind for some time.

Speaking to GMS, the Daily Star reporter said: “Richarlison, I’m pretty sure, has been willing to leave Everton for the last couple of windows.

“He’s certainly ambitious; he’s been playing a lot for Brazil. And you can see that if he wants to nail down a starting spot as Brazil’s No.9, he’s going to have to be playing regularly for a team that’s more successful than Everton right now – I can understand that.”

Should Richarlison leave Everton for Tottenham or United?

If Richarlison has the chance to join either Tottenham or United this summer, it seems like a no-brainer.

Tottenham have a world-class coach in Antonio Conte and are getting back to their best again under him, while United are obviously one of the biggest clubs in the world, if not the biggest.

Can you name this completely forgettable FA Cup winner?

Take into account Everton’s plummet this season, and it becomes even harder to come up with reasons for the former Watford star to remain at Goodison Park.

The Merseyside outfit may also need to sell players during the upcoming transfer window due to the current financial climate at the club. So while Richarlison is easily one of the best footballers in Frank Lampard’s squad, if he is desperate to go, then perhaps allowing him to depart is best for everyone involved.
