Everton: Toffees eye potential Richarlison replacement in El Bilal Toure

Everton: Toffees eye potential Richarlison replacement in El Bilal Toure -Everton News

Everton are reportedly already eyeing up a potential replacement for Richarlison in the form of Reims striker El Bilal Toure.

The Lowdown: Richarlison leaves

As confirmed by the Merseyside club, Richarlison has now officially left Goodison Park to join Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

The Brazil international leaves after a memorable four seasons, scoring 53 goals and making a further 14 assists in 152 games in total over all competitions (Transfermarkt).

The Latest: Replacement lined up?

Taking to Twitter, transfer expert Graeme Bailey has revealed that Frank Lampard’s team are now eyeing up a move for Toure as a potential Richarlison replacement:

“Everton eye Reims star as potential Richarlison replacement. El Bilal Toure is a major talent and the Toffees have been watching the Mali ace for a number of months.”

Expanding in his article for 90min, Bailey adds that Borussia Dortmund, Sevilla, Lyon and Monaco have also looked at the Mali international, who is thought to cost in the region of £20m.

The Verdict: Big boots to fill

Of course, Richarlison’s boots are big ones to fill, and so a lot of expectation would be placed on Toure should he sign.

The striker only managed two goals and four assists in Ligue 1 last term (Transfermarkt), and so is a player that Toffees supporters would likely have to be patient with.

He is only 20 years of age, and so has the potential to reach Richarlison’s heights in time, but the Blues really need someone who can hit the ground running straight away, so perhaps we could see two new front men arrive this summer.
