Everton Ace Happy With Life At Merseyside Amid Man United Interest: What Should Be Solskjaer’s Play?

In a recent interview with Four Four Two (via the Daily Mail), Everton striker Richarlison shared his thoughts on the recent speculation linking him with a move away from Goodison Park and said, ‘It’s a nice feeling when you get praise for your good work, but I’m not thinking about a transfer at the moment.

‘I’ve just arrived at Everton. I’m happy here.’

The Sun has claimed that the Toffees would demand £100m for their prized asset with the Red Devils looking to bring him to Old Trafford in this offseason.

Richarlison’s Mixed Campaign With Everton

Since sealing a move from Watford last summer, the Brazilian forward made a brilliant start to his life at Merseyside when he scored a brace against Wolverhampton Wanderers on his Everton debut. However, his form has dipped a lot after the turn of the year with the major bulk of his goals coming in the first half of the Premier League season.

Richarlison has struggled to find confidence towards the latter stages of the recently concluded English top-flight season which saw the Toffees miss out on a top 7 finish in the league table. The 22-year-old has scored 14 goals and grabbed two assists in 38 matches for Marco Silva’s side across all competitions.

What Does The Brazilian Talent Offer On The Pitch?

Richarlison boasts decent pace and is an excellent dribbler with the ball down the wide areas. He is not afraid to take on his marker and try to beat them on the dribble to create openings for others or conjure up a goal-scoring attempt for himself. When he is firing on all cylinders up front, the Brazilian striker can be a match-winner for his team.

However, Richarlison needs to be more consistent with his performances if he wants to prove his value at an elite club like Man United. At 22, he is about to embark upon the peak years of his playing career which the Red Devils could look to benefit from over the next few campaigns.

What Should Be Solskjaer’s Play?

The South American has all the attributes of a prolific goal-scorer and so Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should not give up on his pursuit of Richarlison just yet. Even though the player has not shown enough on the pitch to merit a £100m price tag, Man United should still consider paying over the odds for him as they are in desperate need of adding more quality to their squad ahead of the new season.
