Report: Everton slap £65m bounty on 22-year-old’s head, amid PSG interest

Richarlison has been a man in form during 2018/19 and the Toffees seem reluctant to lose him

Everton have slapped a £65 million price tag on the head of Brazilian sensation Richarlison in an attempt to fend off interest from PSG, according to Le10Sport.

The Toffees paid £50 million to land the 22-year-old last summer (BBC Sport) and it wouldn’t appear they want to let him go any time soon.

Marco Silva’s team finished in eighth place in the Premier League, with the ex-Watford man helping himself to 14 goals. The boss would dearly like to keep hold of a player with serious talent.

PSG are hoping to find a replacement for Angel Di Maria this summer and the Daily Star speculate that Richarlison could be viewed as an ideal replacement.

It is uncertain at this stage whether Everton’s valuation will deter the Parisian giants from signing the forward.

 

TBR Verdict

One thing that PSG do have in their favour is finances. The reported £65 million is pretty much a drop in the ocean to the French champions.

Their interest in Richarlison is likely to be legitimate and that could be a worry for Everton. They won’t want to lose their top goalscorer after just one year at Goodison Park.

Replacing the Brazilian who can play either out wide or through the middle would be a thankless task; whilst it would almost certainly cost more than the £65 million they will receive for him.

Taking into consideration his age, ability and potential to improve, Everton would be wise to stand firm. If Richarlison nets another 14-20 goals next season, they might be in an even better position to demand more money.
