Premier League club Everton have reportedly placed an £80m asking price for Brazilian forward Richarlison’s who has been a subject of interest from hosts of top teams in Europe.

The 21-year-old has been in fine form in an otherwise disappointing season for the Toffees by founding back of the net 11 times in 28 games, while also scoring three goals for Brazil’s senior side in his first six caps.

The Merseyside Blues raised eyebrows when paying for the Hornets £40m to sign Richarlison last season, however, the Toffees believe that his valuation has now doubled after six months at Goodison Park.

The Daily Star claimed that Atletico Madrid, Chelsea, PSG and AC Milan have all been keeping tabs on the ex-Fluminense attacker, however, Everton will not sell unless their asking price. (£80m)

Richarlison is believed to be happy at Goodison Park, however, that may change should under-fire head-coach Marco Silva – who brought him to the English top-tier football with the Hornets in 2017 – be sacked in the coming months.

Marco Silva is keen on to keep Richarlison at Goodison Park, however, if someone agrees to pay £80m for Brazilian it’s unlikely to see him to player for the Merseysiders next season.

Meanwhile, another attacking options who has been rumoured with a switch to Chelsea has been Maurizio Sarri’s former player Lorenzo Insigne., Italian forward has been rumoured with an exit from Stadio Sao Paolo and Chelsea see him as an ideal replacement for Eden Hazard who is likely to leave the club this summer and join Real Madrid.
