In a recent report, Eurosport mentioned that Everton attacker Richarlison is keen on a move to Real Madrid this summer. However, it is understood that the Toffees have no plans to sell the Brazilian forward which could make it difficult for Los Blancos to recruit him in this off-season (via Eurosport).
Richarlison’s Impressive Form At Merseyside Last Season
Richarlison had a solid campaign with the Merseyside club as he continued to flourish alongside Dominic Calvert-Lewin in the final third. The 24-year-old netted 13 goals and grabbed three assists in 40 matches for the Toffees last season across all competitions.
The Brazilian striker contributed in a lot of different ways for his side after he averaged 1.4 tackles, 1.0 clearances, 2.4 shots, 0.7 key passes and 1.8 dribbles per game in Premier League football. However, he needs to be more careful when distributing the ball in the opponent’s half, as evidenced by his pass completion rate of 70% in the English top tier (stats via whoscored).
Richarlison has proven himself to be a reliable performer at Goodison Park but he could benefit from a change of scenery this summer in search of some major silverware in the coming seasons. Hence, Los Blancos would be wise to orchestrate a move to secure the Brazilian’s services during this summer transfer window.
Should Real Madrid Get Richarlison On Board This Summer?
Richarlison is not afraid to run at defenders and tends to come alive when left isolated in a 1v1 situation out on the wide areas. He can be a decent finisher in the attacking third and can also create some encouraging plays for others around him.
The Brazil international is only getting better with each season in the Premier League. However, he is yet to win a major trophy with the Toffees which could put a top club like Real Madrid in a good position to lure him to the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium in this off-season.
Carlo Ancelotti knows Richarlison well from their time together at Goodison Park last season. The Brazilian talent could even serve as a suitable replacement for Eden Hazard who has failed to steer clear of injuries during his time at the Spanish capital.
Richarlison’s versatility to play in any position across the frontline means that he would also act as cover for Karim Benzema, who remains Los Blancos’ primary centre-forward. At 24, the best is yet to come from the Everton star, so it makes sense for Ancelotti to get him on board ahead of the new campaign.
