According to the Liverpool Echo, Everton are considering a move for Watford attacker Richarlison in this summer’s transfer window.
The Brazilian joined Watford from Fluminense outfit ahead of the 2017-18 campaign, and scored five times and registered five assists in 38 Premier League appearances last term.
Manchester United have been credited with an interest in the versatile attacker, whilst Tottenham Hotspur are also believed to be admirers of the 21-year-old.
Everton are the latest club to reportedly express an interest, however, with the Toffees preparing to spend big this summer in a bid to close the gap on the top six.
The club’s supporters have been reacting to the transfer rumour, and it would be fair to say that the response was not overwhelmingly positive.
It was Marco Silva that brought Richarlison to Watford last summer, and it will be very interesting to see what occurs if the former Hornets boss becomes Everton’s new head coach ahead of the new season.

I think Richarlison is a very talented striker and could provide the physique and pace required at Everton. I also admire Loftus-Cheek but sadly I suspect Chelsea will want to see him in their squad next season.

Everton won't be signing any Watford players unless they have release clauses or they available on a free
