Everton forward Richarlison “wants to stay” in the Premier League if he leaves Goodison Park this summer, according to UOL Esporte.
The Brazilian website reports that Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus have been interested in the 24-year-old in the past, but he is keen to continue his career in England.
It is believed that Manchester United, Tottenham and Newcastle have all made recent enquiries about Richarlison’s availability, with the player “determined to take the next step in his career”.
At the moment, Everton are thought to be holding out for a fee in the region of €80m (£67m) but that could be reduced if the Toffees are relegated to the Championship.
It’s likely that a decision to make a formal approach for Richarlison will depend on United’s next manager. Ajax boss Erik ten Hag is the firm favourite to take up the role and the Dutchman is reportedly looking to take full control of transfers. Whether the Brazilian would meet his approval. we shall have to wait and see.
