EPL rivals name asking price for key man with several UCL giants including Chelsea circling

Everton have reportedly put an £80 million price tag on their key man and rumoured Chelsea target Richarlison, who is also wanted by three other European giants.

The Brazilian star has recently appeared as a summer target for Maurizio Sarri’s side, but AC Milan, Paris Saint-Germain and Atletico Madrid are also understood to be watching the winger closely.

The 21-year-old attacker, who has netted 10 goals in 23 EPL matches this season, won his first senior cap with Brazil the previous September has since scored three goals in six for his country.

Maintaining that impressive form has been a struggle for the forward, however, with the Sout American dropped for the previous week loss to Manchester City – although he did return versus former club Watford on Saturday.

That drop off has not stopped rumours that the Toffees key man could be on the move in the summer transfer market, although a British tabloid newspaper the Daily Star states that the club want double the £40 million they paid for him in 2018.

The report goes on to claim that whether the former Watford ace wants to stay or go may also depend on current manager Marco Silva’s future at Goodison Park.

The Portuguese tactician has had a big influence on the star’s career to date, but is in severe danger of being dismissed after a shocking run of results.

Chelsea are lining up potential replacements for Belgium international Eden Hazard and Richarlison is reportedly one of them with Watford’s Roberto Pereyra and Napoli’s Lorenzo Insgine also on the list.
