Chelsea keeping close tabs on £50m-rated Everton star

Chelsea are still interested in signing Everton attacker Richarlison.

The west London outfit were linked with a move for the 21-year-old earlier this year following a brilliant start to life in English football with Watford.

However, the Brazil international ultimately joined the Merseyside club and reunited with his former Watford manager Marco Silva in a deal which could rise to £50 million, and he has since scored six goals in 12 league games for the Toffees.

Goal Brazil claims that the Blues are continuing to monitor the forward, keeping close tabs on him ahead of the upcoming January transfer window reopening next month.

Richarlison’s form so far this campaign has earned him an international debut, and he has hit the ground running for his country with three goals in his first six caps.

Everton are not willing to sell the youngster so soon after bringing him to the club, though, and London rivals would likely have to table a bid well more than £50 million to prise him away from Goodison Park.

The Brazilian forward would be a great replacement for the ageing duo of Willian and Pedro.
