Richarlison

English Premier League outfit Chelsea have been given the green light to have Everton star Richarlison in the coming summer transfer window, according to a Star report.

The West London outfit have been linked with the Brazilian international over time with claims that he could be brought in as a replacement for Belgium international Eden Hazard who is believed to be on his way out of the Stamford Bridge.

It is claimed that the Belgium international will be heading to the Spanish La Liga outfit Real Madrid after confessing his love for the club as his dream team.

However, the Everton star is being considered as a perfect fit to replace the outgoing man owing to his versatile ability to work out goals and also score.

The West London outfit have therefore been handed a big hope of having the signature of Richarlison but the Toffees have made it clear that he would not be leaving with any fee less than £80 million, which is his asking price.

It is unclear if the Blues will be willing to spend that much on Richarlison but suggestions are that the West London will submit a bid based on what they are able to cash in from Hazard’s move.
