The 25-year-old Brazilian has been an integral part of Everton helping them escape relegation this season. Moreover, the Everton forward is under contract with the club till 2024.
A potential move away from the Goodison Park is being studied by other clubs in the Premier League. Everton wants upwards of £50 million for the striker’s exit from the club.
Richarlison has indicated previously his desire to leave the club and join a new side with new ambitions. It appears as though his wish could be granted this summer as Chelsea looks favorite to sign him.
Chelsea, to solve Lukaku’s problem with Richarlison?
Chelsea have struggled in front of the goal this season with their forwards unable to score too many goals in crucial games.
Romelu Lukaku, Kai Havertz, and Timo Werner have failed to convert many of their chances to goals throughout the campaign. Manager Thomas Tuchel’s worries in front of the goal could be sorted with the integration of Richarlison from Everton.
Richarlison has managed to score 11 goals and provided five assists in the 32 appearances he made with the Toffees this season. However, there still seems to be room for improvement for a player of that caliber.
Under a better setup such as that of Chelsea’s, the Everton striker could perform at a far more impressive level. A win-win situation can be possible if the striker’s move to the Bridge is to happen this summer.
Fans hoped Lukaku would relish a great comeback season for Chelsea as did the player. However, that did not seem to be the case and the forward is exploring the option of heading back to Inter Milan on a loan next season.
If the deal goes through, Richarlison could be the answer to Chelsea’s problems in front of the goal.
