Having found themselves flirting with relegation, Everton fans will be desperate to see their team still in the Premier League.
However, regardless of the state of the Toffees’ first division next season, it appears that one of the first-team players is destined to move forward. Winger Richarlison is by far one of the club’s biggest talents, but with the club in free fall it’s no surprise to see him sought after by some of the top clubs in the league.
We exclusively reported over a month ago that Manchester United’s transfer chief Matt Judge held talks with the Brazil agent over a proposed summer transfer deal in January – a story that has since been backed up by prominent transfer expert Fabrizio Romano.

Head coach Frank Lampard prepares for his final eight league games and with the team in 17th place, precariously above the relegation zone with 28 points, the club will hope Richarlison’s mentality remains steadfast in helping his side overcome the prospect of relegation.
Since joining the Toffees from Watford in 2018, Richarlison, who has two years left on his deal, has continued to make 145 appearances, across all competitions, directly contributing to 62 goals along the way.
