Watford’s talented Brazilian youngster Richarlison has been identified by new Everton boss Marco Silva as the man to lead his attack next season.
The Portuguese boss believes the 21-year-old would jump at the chance to be reunited with him on Merseyside, according to TeamTalk.
Silva has yet to make a signing since becoming the new Toffees boss earlier this summer. However, now the World Cup is finished he is looking to make a storm in the transfer window.
Requiring his former player Richarlison’s signature would be a real coup for Silva, considering the Brazilian’s age and undeniable talent.
Richarlison impressed playing under Silva at the start of last season, with many touting the 21-year-old to make a big money move away from Watford this summer.
However, after Silva parted ways with the Hornets, Richarlison’s form dipped and the pacey, silky Ronaldo-esque striker seemed to lose his way.
Nevertheless, being reunited with his old boss at Goodison Park seems to be the next logical step to take for the young Brazilian to realise the talent he possesses.
The fact Richarlison showed glimpses of what he could become last season, should be more than enough for Everton fans to get very excited.
It’s still unclear how much Silva and Everton would have to fork out to require the young forward’s signature. However, there’s undoubtedly a profit to be made for the Toffees if Richarlison becomes the player everyone believes he can.
