Chelsea are reportedly ready to pay the £50M it may take to sign Richarlison from Everton this summer
Richarlison is a player that all the big clubs have been linked with over the past few transfer windows – as many believe that he should be competing at the top of the Premier League and not the bottom

Thomas Tuchel wants to bolster his attacking options following an underwhelming end to the 2021-22 campaign – and with the reports which have claimed that Richarlison is now leaving Everton – we have been linked with a possible transfer move

New Chelsea owner Todd Boehly is reportedly happy to spend big in this transfer window – And Richarlison’s value soared with six goals in the last nine games of the Premier League season to help Everton stay up

There is no doubt that Richarlison is a very good attacking midfielder – but dont we already have a number of players that can do the job that he does?

He is a goal-scorer but not quite the man that will bang in 30-goals a season and lead that attack

He is more of a wing-forward that does his best work from the left – so unless Tuchel is also looking to spend big money on a striker to replace Romelu Lukaku – the Brazilian is not the answer to the clubs problems

It will be interesting to see just what the club do over the next few months as there are only two real options for the club left – Robert Lewandowski and Harry Kane – these are the only two strikers that will improve the attack
