Report: Richarlison indicates he may be ready to leave Everton
Richarlison has indicated that he may be ready to leave Everton this summer, according to a report from the Daily Mirror.
The Toffees are closing in on announcing their next manager, with the Mirror reporting that Rafa Benitez has agreed a contract.
He will reportedly be unveiled on Wednesday. That is despite the backlash that speculation surrounding Benitez has received.
And it appears that one of his first tasks may be trying to convince Richarlison to stay at Goodison Park.
According to the Daily Mirror, the 24-year-old has indicated that he could want to move on from Merseyside.
The report notes that several Spanish sides are showing interest.
He reportedly took Carlo Ancelotti’s departure badly.
The Athletic recently claimed that he was debating his future. So it would appear that he may be edging towards wanting to leave.
Benitez will need something special if Richarlison looks to leave Everton
It would be a big blow for Everton to lose Richarlison. The forward scored 13 goals in all competitions for the Toffees last season.
Only Dominic Calvert-Lewin found the back of the net more often.
Of course, Benitez is likely to have targets in mind. But if Richarlison moves on, he will be under pressure to produce something special in the market.
Everton already lack depth in the final third. So losing the Brazilian would be anything but ideal.
