Everton's Richarlison fuels Chelsea move with Twitter post
Everton and Brazilian winger Richarlison trolled fans on Thursday with a Twitter post, fueling speculation that a move to Stamford Bridge could be on the cards.
The 25-year-old, currently on international duty with the Brazilian national team, has been linked with a move away from Everton this summer transfer window.
Despite increasing pressure from Richarlison for a summer move, with interests from Chelsea and Arsenal, Frank Lampard remains adamant and keen on retaining the services of the Brazilian this summer.
Since joining the Toffees from relegated Watford in 2018, Richarlison has been one of the Blue side's best players. Richarlison has managed over 10 goals in every season he has played for the toffees.
The 1.84-meter player believes it is time to take the next step in his career, and as such, he is pushing for a transfer with plenty of options at his disposal.
At the peak of today's afternoon, Richarlison trolled fans on Twitter over speculations surrounding his future. The Brazilian posted a picture of himself looking angry and dissatisfied.
Richarlison's post sparked speculation among fans about which club he will be joining next season. The Brazilian has been heavily linked with a move to Chelsea, who are looking to strengthen their squad after a disappointing season.
Richarlison has scored 53 goals in 152 appearances in all competitions for Everton.
Other Premier League top clubs are reportedly keeping tabs on his situation at Goodison Park, including Arsenal, who are also interested in his compatriot Gabriel Jesus.
Richarlison was a crucial player in Everton's successful escape from relegation last season, scoring 10 league goals in 30 appearances, including a crucial 75-minute equalizing goal that leveled Crystal Palace's 2-0 lead in the club's 3-2 home win that helped Frank Lampard's side to stay up in the league.
Frank Lampard is still hopeful that Richarlison will stay beyond the summer as he prepares to compete among the top clubs in the Premier League next season, but the chances are very slim.
Richarlison is valued at €39 million, and any price increase could entice them to sell. On the other hand, Richarlison, at 25, would be looking to take a giant step in his career after spending 4 seasons at Everton.
Richarlison has four goals for the Brazil national team in 2022, bringing his career total to 14 international goals in 36 appearances, including his goal against South Korea last Thursday.
