Chelsea are in pole position to pip Arsenal and Tottenham to the signing of Everton striker Richarlison, according a new report. The London trio are all avid admirers of the Brazilian, who could leave Goodison Park for the right price this summer.
Richarlison played a pivotal role in securing Everton’s top-flight status in the final weeks of last term after months spent flirting with the relegation zone. And his tally of 11 goals and five assists in all competitions has put him on the radar of some of the Premier League’s biggest clubs.
Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham have all been chasing a summer deal for Richarlison, but it’s the Blues who are expected to snap up the Brazilian ace, according to a new report from England
After months of uncertainty, Chelsea are finally able to start laying down concrete plans for next season under their new owner Todd Boehly – and they ‘expected to trump’ interest from Arsenal and Spurs to land Richarlison to kickstart their summer spending.
Landing Richarlison would be a major boost for Blues chief Thomas Tuchel, who saw his side struggle for goals last term. It was a torrid season for Chelsea’s strikers; including club-record signing Romelu Lukaku.
