Carlo Ancelotti is reportedly among four managers now eyeing up a move for Everton striker Richarlison in the summer.
The Lowdown: Everton’s saviour?
Richarlison has come up with some big goals in recent weeks, notably five in his last eight games in the Premier League, including the winner against Chelsea at Goodison Park (Transfermarkt).
The Latest: Wanted man
As per Goal Brazil, former Merseyside manager Ancelotti is now eyeing up a move to bring Richarlison to Real Madrid this summer, while Manchester United, PSG and Bayern Munich are also thought to be interested in his signature.
Will Richarlison leave Everton this year?
The striker apparently wants to leave the Toffees, and the four European giants have all made contact over a potential switch.
This comes after reports earlier in the week claimed Richarlison’s camp are searching for a move to one of Europe’s elite.
The Verdict: Depends on price
Richarlison is still clearly a very important player to the team, and so the decision to sell him should be based on what each club offers in terms of price.
Of course, the Blues may not have much choice if they are relegated from the top flight, but if they stay up, then they could demand a significant fee given his age, position and the fact that he is a proven top level international.
However, a move to play European football looks like it may be too tempting for the 25-year-old, and so they may struggle to keep hold of him even if safety is secured.
