The Toffees are planning a long future with the star.
He is set to sign a new deal with the club.
Everton are putting the finishing touches on a new contract extension for Brazil international Richarlison, director of football Marcel Brands has revealed. The 22-year-old joined the Toffees from Watford during July 2018 in a deal understood to be worth around €48 million.
Richarlison has scored five goals for Everton this season, as the Goodison Park club fight to climb the Premier League table, with the position of manager Marco Silva under scrutiny. Brands said on Everton TV: “We have to look positive ahead, and I try to do that always.
“One of the positive things during a week like this which happened is we are now busy with the last details of extending the contract with one of our key players Richarlison until 2024.That is something positive, especially for the long-term of course.”
Richarlison has been outstanding for Everton ever since he joined them from Watford. His decision to commit his long term future to the club will surely please the fans. Everton have started the season poorly and they could use some sort of morale boost right now.
The Brazilian is still quite young and nailing him down to a long term deal will benefit the club in future. He is likely to get better with time and experience. He is already a Brazil international and one of the most talented young forwards in the Premier League.
