Everton: PSG ready to make move for Richarlison

Everton: PSG ready to make move for Richarlison -Everton News

According to 90min, Paris Saint-Germain are now ready to make their move for Everton attacker Richarlison.

The Lowdown: FFP concerns for Everton

The Premier League are currently investigating whether the Merseyside club have broken Financial Fair Play (FFP) rules, after it was reported that the Toffees have posted losses of £371.8m over the past three years.

Usually, FFP rules allow for losses of £105m over a three-year period, but due to the global pandemic, clubs have been permitted to write off certain losses. Everton have duly claimed that their pandemic losses have amounted to £170m over the last two years.

The Latest: PSG ready to move for Richarlison

According to a report by 90min, PSG are now ready to make a move for Richarlison.

The report claimed that the Toffees may need to sell either the Brazil international or striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin in order to ease FFP concerns.

The 25-year-old has a current market value of £45m (via Transfermarkt), and with two years left on his Everton contract, a move away from Merseyside would require a substantial fee from prospective suitors.

The Verdict: He’d be a huge loss

In 30 league games this season, the Brazilian netted 10 goals, making him Everton’s top scorer by some margin.

Given that reliance on him for goals, Frank Lampard’s attack will be severely depleted if Richarlison ends up leaving Goodison Park for a Champions League club such as PSG.

Even from a defensive standpoint, when compared with positional peers in Europe’s top five leagues over the past year, the 25-year-old ranks in the 99th percentile for blocks, the 95th percentile for tackles, and the 93rd percentile for interceptions (via FBRef).

Therefore, Everton will be losing arguably their most ‘important’ asset – as David Prentice previously dubbed him – if they are forced to let him go to PSG this summer amid concerns over FFP compliance.
