Richarlison has been on Everton’s books since 2018.
The 23-year-old joined the Toffees from fellow Premier League outfit Watford for a fee believed to be in the region of £35m.
The Brazilian had a solid debut season at Goodison Park which saw him score 13 and assist two in 35 league outings.
The 2019/20 campaign then saw Richarlison produce a very similar tally, this time earning one more assist in 36 Premier League ties.

Richarlison on his future
The hitman’s talents and potential do not appear to have gone unnoticed either.
It was reported back in January that the Toffees had rejected a staggering £85m offer from Spanish giants, FC Barcelona.
Richarlison himself also recently confirmed there was interest in his services from both Barca and Manchester United during the campaign.
So, with Richarlison tied down until 2024 and having already stayed put after some huge clubs came calling, Everton fans may have been forgiven for thinking Richarlison will be on Merseyside for the long-haul.
However, when recently discussing talks he had with Carlo Ancelotti about staying at Everton, the attacker did admit it may depend on whether or not a good offer comes in. Richarlison also added he thinks he can hold on for another season, suggesting he isn’t exactly too committed to Everton in the long-term.
On a slightly more positive note, though, Richarlison did claim that Ancelotti will be brining in new players:
“It’s all been talked about, he’s already told me he’s counting on me for another season, he asked me to hold on for a bit.
“Though it all depends, if a good offer were to come in, we sit down and talk, that’s part of football. We’re still talking about these details, working things out.
“He’s bringing in new players, so we’ll sit down and talk, but I think I can hold on for another season.”
