Everton Announce Signing of Richarlison
Everton have confirmed the signing of Richarlison from Watford for a fee thought to be in the region of £50m. He becomes the first signing for new boss Marco Silva, who brought Richarlison to England when he managed Watford.
The 21 year old Brazilian told evertonfc.com, “I want to score more goals, provide more assists for my teammates and help in whichever way is possible. Everyone in the world knows Everton. It is a very big club, one of the biggest in England as I said. I am really happy and honoured to be here.”
His manager Marco Silva added, “He is one more player who can help us. He is a good player who will make our team and our squad more competitive. The competition between our players is really important to me.
“This is what will make us better as a club, always that competition within the squad. The player himself is fast, strong, very good technically and he can play in three positions across the front line. He can also score goals. Evertonians will see a player who will be 100 per cent committed to helping our team always.”
