As the winter transfer window comes closer and closer Barcelona are being linked with more and more potential transfers.
It’s claimed by British media that Barcelona are linked with surprise move for Everton forward Richarlison.
The Brazil international joined Everton from Watford for a fee in the region of 39.2 million euros in July 2018. His contract expires in the summer of 2023.
The 21-year-old is considered to be one of the best forwards in Brazil.
As a member of Brazil national football team, Richarlison won 6 caps and he scored 3 goals.
His impressive performances this season have apparently caught the eye of some of Europe’s big clubs.
Ernesto Valverde wants to sign a new forward and Richarlison is one of the names at the top of his wishlist. He is a known admirer of the player and is reportedly keen on the idea of bringing him this winter.
According to The Sun, “Barcelona have now turned their attention to Richarlison as they look to the Premier League for a replacement for Luis Suarez. The Brazilian ace’s impressive start to the season has caught the attention of the Spanish club who are looking to revamp their forward line. According to the Daily Star, the Everton forward is their latest transfer target as 32-year-old Suarez is battling knee problems. However, Barcelona’s No.1 target is Harry Kane and they’re prepared to make a world-record bid for the Tottenham striker.”

Everton are reluctant to let Richarlison go, but a big enough bid could persuade them to sell.
Signing the 21-year-old in the winter transfer window would be a masterstroke from Ernesto Valverde.
Richarlison would provide a good variety to Barcelona’s attack.
How strong that interest is and whether Barcelona will make a move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
