Richarlison Hopes Everton Can Add Neres
Everton forward Richarlison is hopeful that the Toffees can add his compatriot David Neres from Ajax this summer.
Neres and Richarlison were part of the Brazil squad that won Copa América on home soil this summer.
Everton have been linked with the Ajax winger all summer and Richarlison hopes the club can make the move happen.
“Richarlison told the Liverpool Echo: “Yeah, I read something about that. I’ve spoken to him about it already.
“I told him the doors are open for him there, and that he could help us a lot. I hope he comes. He’d be very welcome there.
“I’ve known him since we played together for Brazil’s U20 side, and he’s a guy I get along with really well. Hopefully I’ll see him there.
“He’s a player who really attacks defenders and runs at his marker, so he’s got the right profile. With me and Bernard there, it would work really well.”
Neres suggested he would be open to such a move, “I try to stay focused on what’s happening on the pitch, and on the competition I’m playing in.
“I leave those things to my agents to deal with. Of course the Premier League interests me. It’s the best league in the world, and I’ve always wanted to play there. But I leave all that in God’s hands.”
