Fresh reports of interest in Richarlison from abroad

| Saturday, 11 May 2019 15comments  |  Jump to last
Barcelona have again been credited with serious interest Richarlison and have watched him twice in recent weeks according to a report in his native Brazil and there are other suitors for him based on suggestions in the English press.

O Globo claim that scouts from the Spanish club were at Goodison Park to watch the 22-year-old score against Chelsea and Manchester United while Barça representatives also ran the rule over him on international duty in games against Cameroon, Panama and the Czech Republic.

The report says that they have also approached both his agent and Everton to sound out the possibility of doing a deal but it's likely that the Blues will want around £80m to £90m for him if they are interested in selling.

Meanwhile, The Mirror are saying that Paris St Germain and Atletico Madrid want Richarlison and are set for a summer "tug of war" for him.

I'd like to keep him but how many Barca players other than Gomes might we like. I would hope that Mr Brands would be looking at their list and asking for Gomes, Player X and 50Mill. Makes things interesting if they insist this will be part of any Gomes deal.

Barcelona is a selling club, Real is too...they all are. Those two mentioned are in a rebuilding phase now, so are Untd, Chelsea Arsenal and if the rs and City aren't, well they should be.

So there we have it, who'd have thought, you can be a buyer anda seller and why not, you can't have one without the other.

Its the Brands business model, £45M outlay, £90M cash in, buy cheap, sell dear, business 101.

The real trick is to have the cheap replacement lined up.

Like it or not, baring it going all Mike Walker-ish, we're going to have to let our 3 'M's run with this method for a season or three, because as Spurs and Arsenal before them have found - New Stadiums and spare cash do not go hand in hand.

Very much hope this isn’t true - Richarlison has been a revelation and at 22 we have a player with years to give us before he potentially peaks.

However, if Barca want a player they normally get him - I’d hope he’d demand more than the few they paid for Dembele though given his record in this league, so well over €130m

There are clubs who sell to survive as a business model. That isn't Everton by any description. There are clubs who sell strategically to offload players they don't want and as good business if they can make significant profit. That's what businesses do. All clubs are selling clubs as even top clubs fit the selling as business model and Everton are no different. So, if all clubs are selling clubs, and they are, why pick Everton out as somehow different? If we feel that we can replace Richarlison especially by development from within, surely selling him would be exceptional business at the right price. Same with Gueye sad though it would be. The real problem for me is Kurt Zouma.

I just don’t see Richarlison as a Barcelona player. He has scored a decent amount of goals, but I haven’t been overly impressed with his all round game, apart from a handful of good games he’s had. His strengths are his ability to pop up with a goal and his work rate. I can’t see him fitting into the technical game Barcelona play. So this is a non starter for me.

Danny #6.

Everything changes, especially in football. Barcelona had their arses seriously kicked by that lot over the road and were probably a tad lucky to be leading 3 nil anyway. Pressing with high energy players seems to be the way forward and Richarlison ticks both those boxes, hence the gossip about Klipperty showing interest.

I could see this working with Gomes coming this way plus lots of cash.

For me it's Gueye that's going to hurt the blues far more than losing Richarlison.

Looks like we are losing all our best players, if you believe what the press are writing on this fine Sunday morning.

Gueye would be a big miss, but so would Luca Digne, even if he was part of a swap deal involving Danny Rose!

Richarlson has got to stay, but if he can’t, then Everton, would have to demand the same type of fee that Barca paid Liverpool for Coutiniho, and a bit more on top.

We say it every year, but this summer is the big one as far as I’m concerned, and I think we will have a much clearer view of the direction the club wants to take, when it’s over?

There will be loads of this stuff floating around. We just have to wait and trust that Brands knows what he’s doing.

If we get Rose for Digne, though, we might as well give up. That has to be bollocks.

That time of year again when the rumours start about any semi decent player. If however any ‘big’ club come after him with a £60m-£70m+offer, I’m not sure how much fight they’ll be from us to say no. We’d probably bite their hand off.

On purely business terms a great deal but we’d obviously need an idea of a replacement and if the deal happens early everyone will know we’ve chased in and try to relieve us as a much of our new found cash as possible.

On another note, shame there are no stories linking us with Mitrovic. If Southampton get him for £30m that would be an absolute steal. The guy is big aggressive and a proven goal scorer. Exactly what we’re crying out for. £30m when we coughed up £27m for Tosun is just ridiculous.

It just shows we must be doing something right at Everton when the "big clubs" come to us to sort their woes !

I'm sure Spurs would love Digne for Rose but why on earth would we do that ?

Echo also saying we have opened talks with Barcelona for Gomes, so still hope ?

If we flipped Richarlison for 90m that is quite a profit within a year but we'll struggle to find better.

It's good that there is interest in our players however - if there wasn't we'd be in a worse position.

The Digne/Rose subject "should" be funny but it's that pathetic that it isn't, it's just, well, pathetic.

I wouldn't swap Baines for Rose, Digne - no way.

Wouldn't Mrs. Digne prefer the grand life in the North West (big house, big garden, countryside, nice environment to raise their newly born) than the hovel that is London ?

Traveling down (from Liverpool) to London last Tuesday I was sat in front of an Evertonian who was clearly a football agent or scout / club official on his way to a meeting with "Matt". Grimes from Swansea ? DM so I understand if so who's out ? Understandably Gueye has caught the eye of a few mega clubs but unless we intend to replace him with Ndidi (or Choudhury ?)I feel that we need to keep him.

Sometimes, players go on to greater things and a hat full of medals. Roy Keane, Ronaldo, Suarez etc. However, just as often it doesn't work out and you get the feeling a player should have stayed where he was. Coutinho, Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez spring to mind. Richarlison is still young and will hopefully stay with us for at least another season.

One thing has become clear over the past few months, that is we hold a premium asset in Richarlison.

He's young, scores goals and he's Brazilian, his value is only going one way. If we do have to sell, then we need to take the stance them shits across the park took with Courtinho.
