Chelsea Would Be ‘Dream’ Destination for Richarlison

 

Richarlison Drawing Interest

The forward has reportedly held discussions with manager Frank Lampard and the Everton board regarding his future and revealed that he is open to a move in the summer, preferably to a club with Champions League football. 

The former Watford man made 30 appearances for Everton in the 2021/22 season, scoring ten goals and providing five assists as the club managed to avoid relegation from the Premier League. However, it seems that the Brazilian has now set his sights on competing at a higher level with Champions League football hopefully being on the cards. 

Barcelona and Real Madrid have both had interest in Richarlison in the past, however it is reported that the winger would prefer to remain in the Premier League.

Richarlison’s Fit at Chelsea

With striker Romelu Lukaku returning to Inter Milan on loan from Stamford Bridge, Chelsea will be looking to bolster their attacking ranks as they look to challenge for the Premier League and Champions League trophies. 

Richarlison has lined up mostly as a centre-forward for Everton this season as they spent much of the season without England international Dominic Calvert-Lewin. However, the Everton man is capable of lining up on either wing too. Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel could make use of Richarlison’s versatility that would allow him to take up any forward position if needed. 

With reports that new owner Todd Boehly has promised Tuchel six signings this summer, it could be a busy transfer window for Chelsea. Richarlison might be the first of those signings through the door at Stamford Bridge.
