Everton striker Richarlison is being lined up as a potential long-term replacement for Luis Suarez at Barcelona, according to the Daily Star.

The 21-year-old has made an impressive start to life at Goodison Park, scoring seven times in 13 Premier League appearances.

He looks one of the most exciting young strikers around and Barcelona are thought to be monitoring his situation.

Harry Kane is their first-choice successor to Suarez, however, with the latter approaching his 32nd birthday and struggling with knee issues.

Antoine Griezmann and Kylian Mbappe are also in the mix, putting Richarlison in some illustrious company.

The Everton man represents the cheapest available option, with £40million the amount being mooted.

It is highly unlikely that Marco Silva would be willing to let him leave, though, and the club would value him higher than that amount.

Barcelona are a club who instantly appeal to many South American players, with Suarez himself finding it impossible not to trade Liverpool for them back in 2014.

It would be a big surprise if Richarlison was to leave Everton so soon after joining, but Blues supporters will still be concerned about the rumours.
