Richarlison says no decision has been made yet about his future, certainly not committing himself to the Goodison Park cause, amid interest from the likes of , and Tottenham Hotspur.

The 25-year-old is still under contract at Everton until 2024 so there is little pressure on the Toffees to sell one of their star players, although he appears to have made some demands of his employers.

The Brazil international says he has sent a message to both the board and his manager, making it clear what he wants from the club.

What that is that he wants is unclear, but it appears that the forward could look to make a move over the summer if he does not receive what he desires.

‘I’ve already made it clear to the board,’ Richarlison said while on international duty with Brazil. ‘I’ve already talked to (Frank) Lampard too, with my agents and they know what I want. Let’s wait for June.

‘Now I can’t 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 that the fans have for me. When we talk about leaving I’m a little speechless.’

report that not only the Premier League trio of Arsenal, Chelsea and Spurs are interested in the former Watford man, but also top European clubs.

Paris Saint-Germain had been keen on him, but Kylian Mbappe staying at the club will mean that a move is now very unlikely. However, Real Madrid are also credited with an interest in Richarlison after they missed out on both Mbappe and Manchester City-bound Erling Haaland.

Everton paid an initial £35m for Richarlison from Watford in 2018 in a deal which could rise to as much as £50m so they would be looking for at least around that latter figure to let him go.

He has scored 53 goals in 152 appearances in all competitions for the Toffees.
