Richarlison’s Transfer Dream Revealed Amid Chelsea Interest After Honest Frank Lampard Talk

Chelsea are still waiting to make their first senior signing of the summer transfer window.


With Romelu Lukaku’s loan move to Inter Milan expected to be made official next week, that deal could kickstart Chelsea’s summer.

The Blues are looking for at least two new central defenders, with Jules Kounde and Matthijs de Ligt both of strong interest at the moment.

Chelsea are also looking to add two new attackers to Thomas Tuchel’s squad following Lukaku’s imminent exit.

Raheem Sterling, Ousmane Dembele and Richarlison are all big targets for the west Londoners.


The latter of the three, Richarlison, has just two years remaining on his contract with Everton.

Richarlison played a huge part in Everton’s survival last season, with the 25-year-old scoring three in the Toffees’ last five Premier League matches – including the winner against Chelsea on May 1 – to help Frank Lampard’s team stay in the top-flight.

Since signing for Everton in 2018 from Watford, Richarlison has found the back of the net 43 times in 135 Premier League games.

Ideally, it would be with Everton, but that seems quite far away right now, given their dramatic relegation battle last term.

According to a report from the Brazilian version of GOAL last month, Richarlison is considering leaving Everton this summer and wants to play for a ‘giant club’ in Europe.

Given Chelsea’s history in the Champions League – with two Champions League trophies to their name – that very much puts them in that category.

The report also adds that the Brazilian prefers the opportunity to stay in the Premier League despite reported interest from Barcelona and Real Madrid in the past.

All of the above bodes well for Chelsea, who want to add the Everton man to their front-line in time for the 2022/23 season.

Richarlison, when speaking to the media recently, revealed that he has already held talks with Everton’s board and manager Lampard over his future.

“I’ve already made it clear to the board. I’ve already talked to Lampard, too, with my agents, and they know what I want. Let’s wait for June,” the Everton forward said last month to Globo Esporte.

“Now I cannot talk because when we talk about leaving a club, I’m kind of like this because of the history I have at Everton, the affection the fans have for me. When we talk about leaving, I’m a little speechless.”
