As announced by the Merseyside club on Tuesday, Everton attacker Richarlison has signed a new deal at the club until the summer of 2024.
The news is a big boost for struggling Everton ahead of their Merseyside Derby meeting with Liverpool in the Premier League.
Everton signed Richarlison from fellow Premier League club Watford last summer for an initial fee of £35m that could rise to as much as £50m based on add-ons.
He followed Marco Silva to Everton from Watford.

Current Everton manager Marco Silva managed Richarlison while he was in charge of the Watford team at Vicarage Road.
Since signing for Everton last summer, Richarlison has scored 20 goals in 55 appearances in all competitions.
His 20th goal for Everton came at the weekend during the unfortunate 2-1 away defeat to title chasers Leicester City at the King Power Stadium on Sunday evening in the last game of week 14 Premier League matches.
Richarlison was linked with a move to Premier League in the summer and the news of his contract extension is a big blow to the Red Devils in their quest to sign the 19-cap Brazilian international.
