Report: PSG contact Everton ace Richarlison
Paris Saint Germain have contacted Everton star Richarlison regarding a potential move, according to RMC Sport.
What’s the story?
The news comes amid reports over the future of Kylian Mbappe, who could leave the Parcs des Prince.
The French publication claims negotiations over a new deal have stalled with the young attacker.
Mbappe has been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid this summer. Marca have said his dream of wanting to join the Spanish giants could come true.
It means PSG will need a replacement and Neymar has allegedly advised the club to sign his countryman.
Richarlison is too precious to lose
With a week left in the transfer window, it is hard to imagine the Merseysiders selling one of their best players.
Richarlison is too precious for Everton to sell him this summer amid alleged interest from PSG.
However, the worry is Richarlison may have his head turned and will want to join the French side.
PSG are a massive club and are competing in the Champions League; an extremely attractive prospect for any player.
Everton must do all they can to retain him until at least next summer.
If his importance to Everton was ever in doubt, they were swept away with a goal in the first game of the season.
It came just seven days after the £90k-per-week Brazilian won the gold medal for Brazil at the Tokyo Olympics.
His commitment and quality make him one of the best players in Benitez’s squad.
Selling him with mere days to go, and with no time to find a replacement, would be madness.
