The former Watford striker joined the Merseysiders last summer in a deal worth £40million as he reunited with former boss Marco Silva.

Richarlison has scored ten Premier League goals in his debut season with the Toffees including a double against Wolves.

He has also earned a national call up and made his debut against the United States and four days later, scoring his first international goal for Brazil against El Salvador.

But he has been dipped in form in recent weeks with Marco Silva dropping him to the bench against Manchester City in midweek.

Richarlison returned to Silva's starting XI against his former club Watford but was substituted in the 66th minute after failing to impress.

Reports claim the Merseyside club are still pleased with him despite his below par performances and are getting ready for a potential transfer in the summer.

Silva's job is currently under threat following poor string of results and Richarlison could be tempted to leave if the Portuguese manager is sacked.
