Richarlison

English Premier League giants Chelsea are insisting that Everton forward Richarlison is the best replacement for Belgium international Eden Hazard.

Eden Hazard is a major part of the Blues team but he could be on his way out of the club in the coming summer window after refusing to extend his deal with the club.

Having been linked to a number of clubs including French Ligue 1 outfit Paris Saint Germain, Barcelona and German Bundesliga outfit Bayern Munich, it is understood that he has taken the decision to join his dream club and Spanish La Liga side Real Madrid.

Los Blancos are also keen on his signature as they hope to have him as a replacement for Portuguese international Cristiano Ronaldo who is away from the club to Italian Serie A champions Juventus.

However, the West London outfit have insisted on the Everton forward because of his feat this season, having scored 10 times so far in 23 Premier League games despite being with a struggling Everton team.

It is understood that Chelsea are hoping to have Richarlison because of his ability to play in a number of roles as well as his ability to score goals so that the outgoing Belgium international will not be missed.
