Everton forward Richarlison, who made the move from Watford to Merseyside for a club record fee a year ago, has been strongly linked with Spanish giants Barcelona and Premier League club Manchester United.
According to the Daily Mirror, the Brazilian forward has denied any possibility of a move claiming he is happy at the Goodison Park, but says he is flattered by the interests of big clubs.
The 22-year-old has a contract with the Toffees until June 2023, and joined them last summer.
Earlier, Richarlison also got a national team call up for Copa America, after impressing Brazilian national team coach Tite with his magnificent debut season at Goodison Park.
Why Manchester United should break the bank for Richarlison
Richarlison is a versatile forward who predominantly features on the left-wing and possesses the ability to switch to either flank or in a centre-forward role.
Everton boss Marco Silva, who deploys his team in a 4-3-3 or a 4-2-3-1 formation, has reaped the benefits of the Brazilian’s flexibility in the final third.
Being a right-footed winger, Richarlison likes to cut inside on his right foot and have a pop at goal, but can also take the ball outside on his left foot, maintaining that unpredictability factor in his game. He averaged 2.4 shots per game, which tells us nothing but that he is a young forward brimming with confidence.
The Brazilian’s finishing and defensive contributions speak volumes; he averages 1.4 tackles per game which is significantly high for a forward. For someone like Solskjaer, who would like his attackers to put a shift in, Richarlison would be a good fit.
The Everton winger, who turned 22 last month, managed 14 goals and 2 assists in 38 appearances in all competitions, which is a huge improvement seeing his five goals for Watford last season.
Richarlison followed Silva boss from Watford to Everton, and he likes playing under the Portuguese, so it’s not going to be easy to prise him away from Goodison Park.
However, considering his form in the last couple of seasons, he would be a good addition the Manchester United as he won’t demand high wages like Alexis Sanchez, and has an approach that is much-needed at the club right now.
