Richarlison Transfer News: Chelsea to sign him as Lukaku’s replacement?

The curse of the number '9' to be broken?

According to the English media, it is believed that Thomas Tuchel would like to sign Everton’s Richarlison this summer in order to strengthen his team’s attack. Now that Lukaku has joined his former team Inter Milan after quite a disappointing second spell at the London club, Richarlison and Sterling are most likely to come in to bolster the squad. The new owners have given a budget of around 200 Million Euros to the German coach which he’ll utilise for the good of his team.

Everton had signed the Brazilian for 35 Million Euros 4 years ago, so now they have quoted a price of 50 Million Euros in order for them to sell him. It’s no secret that many clubs are interested in signing him and Spurs are in the front of them as they are prepared to submit an offer. So after that, it will come down to Richarlison to choose between these teams, and it’s possible that he might choose Chelsea as they have a history of winning major trophies and he will be the first-choice striker under Tuchel, unlike at Spurs where there is Harry Kane.

The Brazilian will turn 25 this year and he already has 5 years of Premier League experience which would be very beneficial for Tuchel. He has had more than 170 appearances in which he has scored 48 goals and provided 16 assists in an average Everton team. So if he is in a good team and a good system, it’s highly possible that the goal contributions could rise drastically. All in all, it would be very interesting to see if the Brazilian could break the curse of the number ‘9’ at Chelsea,
