Everton striker Richarlison will reportedly push for a move away from the club this summer, and the Brazilian is set to snub a move to Arsenal in favour of Chelsea. 

As per The Sun, the 25-year-old has already told his current employers that he wishes to leave the club this summer, and they are likely to oblige as they look to generate funds.

The forward is valued at around £60 million, and has attracted interest from Arsenal, Chelsea and Real Madrid as well as French champions Paris Saint-Germain.

Richarlison played a crucial part in the Toffee’s late survival push, but has just two years remaining on his current deal.

Having arrived in Merseyside from Watford for £50 million four years ago, the striker has pushed for a move to PSG for more than a year now, and was also rumoured to be a target for Barcelona two years ago.

Richarlison could be on his way to London this summer

Arsenal are interested in the player as they look to replace Alexandre Lacazette, who is on the verge of rejoining former club Lyon on a free transfer.

Everton narrowly missed a charge for breaking financial fair play regulations, and will therefore likely agree to let Richarlison leave if a suitable offer is made.

Chelsea meanwhile could also be in the market for a striker with club record signing Romelu Lukaku set to return to Inter Milan; the Belgian struggled upon his return to England and Chelsea will reportedly let him leave on loan.

Richarlison would undoubtedly be a huge loss for Everton, though, with the player having scored 53 goals in 152 games for the club.
