Huge transfer claim: Liverpool reportedly consider Richarlison bid

According to UOL, via Sports Witness, the agent of Everton forward Richarlison has recently met with Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp, who is a huge fan of the Brazil international.

What’s the word, then?

Well, this is a very interesting one.

The Liverpool Echo recently quoted Everton boss Marco Silva as saying that Richarlison would not be sold this summer amid reports of interest from AC Milan.

However, according to UOL, Richarlison’s agent, Renato Velasco, has recently met with Liverpool boss Klopp at his house.

The report goes on to claim that the Reds head coach is a huge fan of the 21-year-old, suggesting that a bid could arrive from Anfield.

It is some claim and it would also be some story if the South American did leave Everton for their bitter rivals in this summer’s transfer window.

UOL report that the Toffees do not want to sell Richarlison, but would consider an offer in excess of £70m for the player that they signed from Watford last summer.

Should Liverpool make a move?

There is no question that Richarlison is a talent.

The versatile attacker has struck 12 Premier League goals for Everton this term, which is a good record when considering that Silva’s side do not create bundles of chances.

Mo Salah has been brutally mocked for his recent diving antics in a new video by 442oons. Check it out below…

There is every reason to believe that the Brazilian will continue to improve, but paying in excess of £70m this summer would be bad business by Liverpool.

Indeed, if Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino all stay this summer then Richarlison would not even make the first XI next season.

And spending that sort of money on a player who has been erratic at times is not something that the Reds should consider in this summer’s transfer window.
