Everton forward Richarlison has reportedly attracted the interest of Premier League rivals Arsenal. 

The 24-year-old Brazilian scored against the Gunners whilst also having two efforts ruled out for marginal VAR offside calls on Monday night at Goodison Park. 

It seems that display as well as an upturn in form since returning from injury has piqued the interest of the North London club. 

That’s according to a report from Spanish outlet Fichajes, as cited by Vai-e-Vem-Futebol on Twitter. 

The report claims that Mikel Arteta will ‘think’ of the six-cap Brazil ace as a replacement for Alexandre Lacazette or Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. 

So far this season Richarlison has scored three times and added two assists in 10 outings for the Toffees. 

READ EVERTON VERDICT

Valued at £49.5million and under contract on Merseyside until 2024 (Transfermarkt), the club would be looking for bids way in excess of the £50million expenditure

However, at present with Rafa Benitez’s squad only now recovering from dire straights on the injury front, selling prized assets should be nowhere near the agenda. 

Instead, Everton must be looking to add star quality to the ranks to supplement the likes of Richarlison and ultimately allow the Brazilian to thrive as a Blue.
