Atletico Madrid monitoring Everton star Richarlison

The reports in England suggested that Atletico Madrid are monitoring Everton forward Richarlison.
Everton spent 39.2 million euros to sign the Brazil international from Watford in the summer of 2018. He has three years left on his current contract which expires in 2024.
The forward has featured in 20 matches this term, netting 5 goals and providing 3 assists in all competitions.
The 24-year-old is considered to be one of the best forwards in Brazil. His record for Brazil is impressive. Richarlison has scored 10 goals in 32 matches for Brazil at senior level.
He has just two years left on his deal and he is yet to sign a new contract. The Brazil international has openly expressed his desire to play at a higher level. This gives an indication that Richarlison probably won’t commit his future at the club.

The former Watford man provides a unique blend between a classic center-forward and the modern forward. His arrival would give Atletico some much needed tactical flexibility.
According to the report, “Everton striker Richarlison is on Atletico Madrid’s radar. Sport says Richarlison is among the candidates to replace Luis Suarez at Atletico Madrid this summer. The Everton star ‘in the running’ as the Spanish side line up potential replacements for the Uruguayan. Suarez is out of contract in the summer and, according to the report, is expected leave the Wanda Metropolitano. Richarlison was linked with a move to Manchester United earlier this week.”
