Chelsea have entered the race to sign Everton forward Richarlison.
They are set to compete for his signature with Tottenham and potentially Arsenal, although given the other targets linked with the Gunners, they seem to be outsiders.
Tottenham have long been linked with the Brazilian international, but now Chelsea are ready to enter the fight with Thomas Tuchel looking to add more goals to his team.
Everton, facing Financial Fair Play considerations, are ready to listen to offers for the player, but he is likely to consist in excess of £50 million.
Tuchel’s side could also be ready to move for Raheem Sterling, with Romelu Lukaku’s return Inter Milan on loan looking increasingly likely.
Richarlison joined Everton from Watford in 2018 for £35 million and he has gone on to make 152 appearances for the Goodison Park club, scoring 53 times. He is under contract with them until June 2024.
