Ex-Everton star Michael Ball believes that Richarlison leaving the club would net the Toffees a “huge” profit.
Reports over the summer suggested that the Brazilian attacker was seen as a potential acquisition for French giants PSG, amid doubts over Kylian Mbappe’s future.
Mbappe was linked with Real Madrid but no deal was ultimately struck, with a bid of just over £171m rejected by the Ligue 1 club.
Should Everton sell Richarlison?
Richarlison, 24, was seen as the potential replacement for the France international but, of course, no bid was ultimately tabled by the French side.
Richarlison moved to the club back in 2018 from Watford in a deal that ultimately cost the Toffees a fee of £50m.
He has gone on to make a total of 122 appearances for the club, scoring 43 goals and registering 10 assists, while he has also won six caps for Brazil, scoring five goals.
Despite the hefty fee attached to the deal taking him to Goodison Park, Ball believes that he will be sold for a huge profit when he eventually does leave the club.
Speaking exclusively to The Transfer Tavern, he said: “If he starts showing the ability that he thinks he has and what he’s shown glimpses of at Everton then a big club will be coming in for him for top dollar.
“It’s a guy who was apparently ruing the transfer window when he made the move to Everton, will show that Everton will be making a huge profit when he finally does leave.”
