Chelsea are interested in signing Richarlison from Premier League rivals Everton in the summer transfer window, according to Fichajes. The report has claimed that Chelsea are monitoring the Brazil international forward, and that the former Watford star could become a priority target if they are unable to sign Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski as the replacement for the Inter Milan-bound Romelu Lukaku.
Richarlison has been on the books of Everton since 2018 when he joined from Watford. The 25-year-old scored 10 goals and gave five assists in 28 Premier League starts for the Toffees last season. The Brazil international forward has scored 48 goals and created 32 big chances in 173 appearances in the Premier League so far in his career.
Chelsea finished in the top four of the Premier League last season, while Everton narrowly avoided the dreaded drop to the Championship.
