Report: Representatives for Everton ace Richarlison hold PSG talks

Representatives of Everton ace Richarlison are in Paris to discuss a potential move to PSG, according to ESPN Brasil.

What’s the story?

According to the publication, the player’s representatives have held talks with Paris Saint Germain over a transfer.

We brought you the news a few days ago about how the Blues had been contacted by the Ligue 1 outfit over a transfer. It has emerged Richarlison is a candidate to replace Kylian Mbappe at Parcs Des Prince.

The France international is the subject of bids from Real Madrid with the latest offer worth a reported €180m (£154m).

Neymar has recommended his international teammate to the French giants as a replacement for the 21-year-old.

After initiating contact over the phone, the meetings in person represent a genuine update over a potential transfer.

Jurgen Klopp dubbed the South American ‘top class’ last season.

Too late in the window for Everton to say goodbye

If ever there was a bad time to lose a player, it would be in the final few days of a transfer window.

It leaves clubs scrambling to find a potential player to replace the outgoing star.

And in Everton’s case, that could prove to be nigh-on impossible.

It is too late in the window for Everton to allow Richarlison to join PSG. No matter how much the Blues bid, where would they find a like-for-like replacement?

Richarlison had a great impact during the comeback win over Southampton a few weeks ago. His goal versus Saints helped initiate a comeback and secure three points.

Richarlison is far too big a player for Everton to lose, and an even bigger one to fail to replace.
