Richarlison tipped to complete transfer after Everton source's update - pundit

Gabby Agbonlahor has tipped Richarlison to force through a move away from Everton this summer.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-Aston Villa and England forward claimed Richarlison will want to join a new club regardless of whether or not Everton are relegated.

A recruitment source told Football Insider earlier this month (17 April) that the 24-year-old has instructed his agents to find a new club this summer.

A source with knowledge of Everton’s recruitment process told this site two days later (19 April) they will listen to offers for both Richarlison and his strike partner Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

The squad is set for a major overhaul regardless of whether Everton avoid relegation as they fail to perform under a number of different managers.

Asked for his verdict on Richarlison’s future, Agbonlahor told Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley: “I think he will do his best to try and leave.

“He’s talked about wanting to play in the Champions League a lot and he gets game time for Brazil.

“He will see himself as being able to play higher and I’m sure he’ll be pushing for a move in the summer.

“He’ll try and leave regardless of what division they are in.”

Richarlison has scored seven goals and four assists in 25 Premier League games but has only found the net once from open play since the middle of January.

The 34-time Brazil international is under contract at Goodison Park until the summer of 2024.
