Chelsea held negotiations with £45m-rated Brazilian attacker

Chelsea are keeping tabs with Everton attacker Richarlison and planning to make a bid in July when the transfer window opens again. Blues need a new prolific forward to improve the front-line and Brazil international is the best choice in this situation. He has an impressive season and proves his worth one more time.

Maurizio set to spend big money on the footballer during the summer transfer window. Liverpool, Milan and Atletico Madrid are also keen to sign him, and there will be a contest for the player. Brazilian attacker joined the English club from Watford in 2018 with a €40m deal.

He is one of the best wingers in Premier League and a key figure for the club. In this campaign, Richarlison already played 36 matches, scored 14 goals and made two assists in all tournament. It is a fantastic result, and he can improve his consequences with high-class partners.

The 21-year-old forward has contracted with the Toffees until 2023, and his release clause is around €45m. He regularly plays in the national team which is already a significant achievement for the player. London club will do everything to add him this summer as Willian and Pedro already up to 30, Eden Hazard and Callum Hudson-Odoi linked with several clubs and they need back-up.

It will be difficult to sign Richarlison as Reds, Rossoneri and Los Rojiblancos also preparing to make an offer during the transfer window. Chelsea also linked with Napoli winger Lorenzo Insigne, Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale, Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho and Serbian centre-forward Luka Jovic.
