Everton fans exploded in delight as Richarlison committed his future to the club by signing a new contract that will see him remain at Goodison Park until the summer of 2024.
The Brazil international signed for £50m from Watford in 2018 and has become a fan favourite since his arrival from Vicarage Road.
Richarlison told the club’s official website that he intends to stay at the club for a long time and wants to repay the club who allowed him to showcase his football.
Thank you for your trust and love @Everton and all evertonians! It’s a pleasure and an honor to be able to wear this shirt and to know that we can have an even longer journey together. Love you all! 💙 pic.twitter.com/ybgV8IILKJ
