Chelsea are interested in signing the Brazilian forward Richarlison from Everton this summer. 

The Blues need to bring in striking reinforcements before the start of the new season, and the Everton striker could prove to be a quality addition. 

Richarlison helped the Toffees avoid Premier League relegation last season, and he will be hoping to play for a club capable of winning trophies now. 

He scored 11 goals across all competitions last season, and has the potential to develop into a consistent goal-scorer with the right service. 

Chelsea could part ways with Romelu Lukaku this summer. The Belgian has been linked with a return to Inter Milan. The Italian giants are hoping to sign him on loan. 

Richarlison could be his replacement at Stamford Bridge next season. 

The 25-year-old has a price tag of around £50m, and it will be interesting to see whether the Blues are willing to pay that kind of money for his services. Apparently, Tottenham Hotspur are keen on signing the player as well. 

Both London clubs can offer the Brazilian Champions League football next season and would represent a major step up from Everton. It remains to be seen where the player ends up eventually.

Chelsea probably have more financial resources, though both the clubs have exciting projects to tempt the Brazilian.
