For the 25-year-old player, this season was good for him. he scored 10 goals and grabbed five assists in 30 games for a club battling relegation. His goal against Chelsea gave the Toffees a shock 1-0 win, and his equaliser in the 3-2 win over Crystal Palace, ensured their place in next season’s Premier League.
Way back in 2018, he was signed by Watford for £45million. Since then, he was rumoured to move away from Goodison Park for several seasons.
According to Football London, while he was on international duty, his comments captured the attention of those interested in winning his signature.
Asked about his next move, he said, “I’ve already made it clear to the board. I’ve already talked to [manager Frank] Lampard too, with my agents, and they know what I want. Let’s wait for June.
“Now I can’t talk, because when we talk about leaving a club I’m kind of like this, because of the history I have at Everton, the affection that the fans have for me. When we talk about leaving I’m a little speechless.”
However, the transfer window looks like a real possibility. Everton won’t let Richarlison go on cheap, and Frank Lampard is doing his best to keep his exceptional players to avoid a relegation battle next season.
