Some Everton fans have reacted to the report suggesting that Chelsea are interested in signing Richarlison.
Chelsea-focused Twitter account @LDNFootball recently posted a tweet sharing the news that Chelsea are “one of a host of clubs” who are interested in securing the Brazilian attacker’s signature. Chelsea’s interest in signing the Toffees ace was originally reported by the Daily Express, who claimed that the 22-year-old attacker would command a fee of £80 million back in February 2019, while The Sun has recently reported that the Brazilian is on Everton’s shortlist ahead of the summer transfer window.
The 22-year-old has been essential for Everton this season, scoring 10 goals so far in his 26 Premier League appearances. This makes him the Toffees’ second-highest Premier League goalscorer for the 2019/20 season, trailing only Dominic Calvert-Lewin, who has scored 13 Premier League goals this season.
Many Everton fans have reacted to the report on Twitter and they are less than impressed.
Here is the selection of their reactions:

No chance we value him at £80 million. You’ve more chance of signing Rashford from Man U for that money than Richarlison who is valued well north of that.

Hahahaahahahhhaahhaah. Everton are a bigger club than Chelsea. He wouldn’t want to go to you. Better manager, better fans, same size stadium and we’re getting a new one. Plus, he’a worth more than £80m
