Richarlison has reportedly emerged as a possible target in the summer for Barcelona – and some Everton fans on Twitter believe they need to be firm to keep him at Goodison Park.
According to Marca, Spanish giants Barcelona are weighing up a potential swoop for the 21-year-old at the end of the season.
It is understood that they want some competition for Luis Suarez moving into next year at the Camp Nou and the Toffees attacker is on their radar.
The report details that it would not be easy for Barcelona to pull off a deal and that he would cost a minimum of £43million.
Richarlison only linked up with the Merseyside club last summer following his switch from Watford and has enjoyed a decent first year.
The Brazil international has scored 13 goals in 35 games across all competitions and clearly enjoys playing under manager Marco Silva.
He’s a versatile attacker that can play anywhere across the frontline, which has seen him deployed on both wings and at striker too during different stages of the season.
His constant changing of position has perhaps not been the biggest of help to him, but he’s currently being used on the right flank and has shown glimpses of why he’s got so much potential.
Here are some Everton fans urging the club to keep Richarlison:
Straight swap for Lionel please

Saying its for 50m…yeah right since he started playing Brazil since signing for us and got a 4 year contract why would we sell him for an extra £10m than we paid for him?

Bit early for the silly season

Not sure if this is accurate. Would love to see Richarlison stay at the club. The lad has a lot to contribute.

I’m sure they would wangle Gomes into a deal sonewhere. Would need to be firm over this with them.
