Everton attacker Richarlison needs to try raise his game another level next season

Everton’s 2018/19 season has drawn to a close and it did end with a four-game unbeaten run to finish.

The Toffees have just completed their first year with Marco Silva as manager and finished eighth in the Premier League, which could be a solid platform to build on for next year.

The Merseyside club signed attacker Richarlison as a marquee addition last summer in a deal that could be worth up to £50million (BBC).

He’s had a satisfying first campaign at Goodison Park, but needs to try kick on to another level moving forward.

 

Richarlison netted 14 goals in 38 games across all competitions this season, which was a decent return in his debut year.

He showed his versatility by operating at striker, right-wing and left-wing during the year, something which may not have helped his rhythm.

The Brazil international, who earns £90,000-a-week (Spotrac), has looked settled on the right flank in recent months and that could be his nailed on position for the foreseeable future.

He’s shown he’s got the quality to score all types of goals and that’s why it shouldn’t be too unrealistic to target 20 goals in all competitions next season.

Everton are going to need to improve if they want to break into the European spots and Richarlison is one of their individuals capable of going up another level.
