Everton in advanced talks to sign Watford’s Richarlison

8:27 pm, 20th July 2018

Richarlison, 21, signed for Watford last summer for £13m from Fluminense when current Everton manager Marco Silva was in charge at Vicarage Road.

The Brazilian forward made a big impression on his arrival to the Premier League, scoring five goals in his first 12 appearances.

A £50m deal would see Richarlison become Everton’s club-record signing, overtaking the £45m the Toffees paid for Gylfi Sigurdsson last summer.

Elsewhere, Serie A outfit Roma have made a £31.3m offer to Bordeaux to sign Everton target Malcom, according to Sky in Italy.

Sky in Italy understand the player has already agreed personal terms with Roma after a positive meeting between his agents and sporting director Monchi on Thursday.

Sky sources reported earlier this week that Everton were interested in signing the Brazilian.
