The Blues confirmed the conclusion of the Brazil star's new deal today after Director of Football, Marcel Brands, had indicated last week that the final details on the 12-month extension to his previous deal but on improved terms were almost in place.
Richarlison, 22, was signed by Brands and manager Marco Silva from Watford last year and he scored 14 times in his debut season at Goodison Park.
So far this season, he has six goals in all competitions and he remains a crowd favourite.
“I intend to be here a long time," Richarlison told evertontv. “This was the club which gave me the opportunity to show my football.
“It was here I managed to get a place in the Brazil national team and it was here I have scored lots of goals in the Premier League.
“The club trusts me and I trust them. The supporters have a lot of affection for me and I try to give back all this affection as much as possible on the pitch.
“I go out and put my life on the line for them. I try to sweat blood and tears for this club. I intend to continue honouring the shirt and making the fans happy and I hope they continue singing my name.”

Mick @3. We're awaiting a VAR review. Apparently his pen hit the paper above the dotted line.

But If we are good enough as a team to hold on to him for the next 5 years we will be doing something right
Now bang in a brace tomorrow lad in a 3-1 victory

Just means that anyone who wants to come calling has even more to pay for. That said, I'm assuming United will be readying an offer by summer. Oh what's that Mr. Ole? You'll give us £80m + cover wages for the next 4 years?
I'll help him pack.

Good business, Everton.
21 Posted 03/12/2019 at 21:52:28
I noted Kean's command of English is a lot better than broadcast, he clearly understands the language, and that will hopefully help him on the pitch.
22 Posted 03/12/2019 at 21:52:58
Good business by the Club. Great, in fact.
Now just stay on your damn feet, son.

Transfermarkt have not yet updated his €50M valuation from June 2019.
25 Posted 03/12/2019 at 22:06:59
My heart soars like a great eagle in sky... Stop your bloody whinging. FFS (he doesn't even speak English, but gets Scouse). 'Marvellous' is all I can say.

Put aside the finger of fate that seems to hover over Anfield, and don't forget Klopp has been in charge for 4 years compared to Marco. I remember when he first came, the so-called fans were rushing out the doors at ¾ time screaming he was rubbish!!
It's been said a hundred times that this will be a turning point to our season and I for one think this will be the case. So relax, enjoy the contest in a great atmosphere with our fans shouting louder than theirs. COYB

There's some cracking stuff on there. My personal favourite was a 5-6-year old Scouse kid, dressed in the Everton Salmon kit, having a kick-around in his back yard, singing the Richarlison 'He's Brazilian' song.
The reason it still has me chuckling is hearing the lyrics sang by such a young kid. For those not familiar with the song, it goes:
He only cost 50 million
And we think he's fuckin' brilliant
Out of the mouth of Scouse babes. It was ever thus!
35 Posted 03/12/2019 at 23:34:56
What I like about Richarlison is that he's good in the air and on the floor while he is combative.
There's a lot more to come and I hope he is playing for us when it does.

But I think he's a top player, room for improvement but if he's happy and continues to play well I've no issue as it's not my piggy bank that needs raiding.
Some goals and more importantly points on the board please. 3 tonight would be nice.

His sale is imminent
43 Posted 04/12/2019 at 09:48:38
This kid is going to be some player and I'm delighted he's committed to another year, which in today's market probably means he'll not be available for sale for 18 months at the minimum.

His value is increasing off the pitch and on it. I don't like theatrics but he will learn. I do like his desire. When he actually gets clobbered for real, he is up and in the face of his opponent. What was good to see yesterday was the restraint he shows when Alexander-Arnold left one on him... because l wouldn't have held back. Or it would've been hard to.
He's just issued a rallying cry in the wake of Silva sacking. He could've sulked. I guess we will see on the weekend how he reacts on the pitch.
Me... l'm glad we've got him. We haven't got too many like him, we need more.

“Eu não tenho que torcer para ninguém, não. O Flamengo já tem mais de 30 milhões de torcedores, um a mais não faz falta. Eu torço é para o meu clube, o Everton.”
Google translate says:
“I don't have to cheer for anyone, no. Flamengo already has over 30 million fans, one more is not needed. I hope it's for my club, Everton. ”
Woah, Richi-boy is a proper Evertonian now. Meantime the Brazilians arent happy on twitter:
Ele adora tirar onda com Flamengo, ganhou oq esse pombo? Menos.
- He loves to wave with Flamengo, won what this pigeon? Any less.
Richi fires back:
Tirei onde com ninguém não irmão só q toda vez depois de um jogo essa mídia suja vem fazer perguntas querendo polêmica.”
- I took where with nobody not brother just that every time after a game this dirty media comes asking questions wanting controversy.
So whats going on and does our boy now bleed blue? Once Everton has touched you and all that.
48 Posted 07/12/2019 at 09:25:58
So this comes from an interview immediately at the derby with Brazilian TV. Hes asked about his old club in the club World Cup and says he is not concerned about the game!
49 Posted 07/12/2019 at 20:29:01
50 Posted 07/12/2019 at 20:47:48
No, I hadn't seen it.
Good for him! The interview was for a Brazilian sports channel so of course, the major upcoming sport event is the likely World Club final between Liverpool v Flamengo.
Naturally, they were fishing for him to say, as a Brazilian, that he will be cheering for Flamengo. He didn't oblige. And quite frankly, I would have been shocked if he DID say he would be rooting for them.
Why? Because before joining Watford he was playing for Flamengo's great Rio rivals, Fluminese.
This particular Brazilian 'classico' is called the 'Fla-Flu' Derby. They hate each other with a passion.
He may not have endeared himself to the 30 million 'Fla' supporters by not saying he intends to support them, but his stock will certainly have been raised with all the 'Flu' fans who still watch him closely.
He was great again today. Took a few knocks and was evidently pissed off at being subbed out (precautionary move..>) and sulking on the bench. He clearly wanted to stay on the pitch and help out his team today.
I'm starting to see rapid maturity and leadership qualities in Richarlison in recent weeks. He was a shy adolescent, playing adolescent jokes in training on joining us.
There is a steelier, more professional, more focused look about him these days IMO.
The beating of the badge when he scores is genuine, not playing to the crowds.
