Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti is reportedly now ‘targeting’ a move in the summer for Everton star Richarlison.
The Lowdown: Mbappe transfer twist
After a shock twist which has seen Kylian Mbappe snub a move to Madrid and sign a new deal at Paris Saint-Germain, Los Blancos will now be looking for another potential Galactico signing this summer.
Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane from Liverpool, and Aurelien Tchouameni from AS Monaco, have all been named as potential targets, along with a certain striker from Goodison Park.
The Latest: Richarlison targeted by Madrid
As per The Athletic journalist Adam Crafton, Real Madrid and Ancelotti are now ‘targeting’ a move for Richarlison in the summer.
Will Richarlison leave Everton this year?
The Brazil international played 59 times over two seasons under the Italian for Everton, scoring 20 goals and supplying four assists (Transfermarkt).
The Verdict: Keep him
With six goals and two assists in his last 10 games in the Premier League before the trip to Arsenal this afternoon, including a goal in the 3-2 win at home to Crystal Palace which secured their top-flight status (Transfermarkt), Richarlison has really shown his worth to the team.
Recently dubbed a ‘huge talent‘ by Frank Lampard, he is still only 25 years of age, and so he has probably not even hit his full potential yet.
The Toffees need to be keeping hold of their best players if they are to kick on next season.
