Everton ensured that their Premier League survival chances will be in their own hands entering into the final weeks of the season with victory over Chelsea on Sunday. 

The Toffees beat the Blues 1-0 courtesy of a Richarlison goal, and Frank Lampard’s side are now just two points behind Leeds United and Burnley.

While they remain in the relegation places at present, Everton have played a game less than both the Whites and the Cherries and will fancy their chances in the closing weeks.

Richarlison has now scored four goals in his last five league games, including a late equaliser against Leicester City, and the Brazilian’s form could be crucial to determining which division Everton play in next season.

Despite his heroics, it appears that the Toffees are willing to let the striker go, though, and they are confident that they will attract offers as high as £50 million for him if his fine form continues.

As per Football Insider, the player is valued at £50 million by his current employers, and they are increasingly confident of fielding offers in that region this summer.

Richarlison is set to be investigated for throwing a flare back into the Goodison crowd after scoring against Chelsea

The same outlet recently reported that the 24-year-old had instructed his agents to find him a new club this summer, so it appears that the Brazil international is intent on departing Goodison Park.

According to the report, Everton are also open to letting fellow striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin leave for the right price, despite a lack of strikers elsewhere in the squad.

The England international has struggled with injuries this term, but has failed to recreate his best form when given the chance and could now be sold as the club plot a huge overhaul.

Both strikers look set to depart Merseyside regardless of whether or not Everton remain in the top flight beyond the end of the season.
