Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti has hailed the impact of Richarlison since his appointment at Goodison Park, describing him as “a modern forward.”

Richarlison signed a new contract with the Toffees shortly before Ancelotti’s arrival and the Italian is more than happy to coach the Brazilian on a long-term basis.

“I was not here when he renewed [his contract] but the fact that he renewed made me happy because he’s a fantastic player. He can play everywhere,” Ancelotti said.

“He’s a modern striker in my opinion. Technically he can improve but his movement is really good, his heading is fantastic, I was surprised, and he has a lot of power in his legs.

“He is a really complete striker but technically I think he can improve. In the control and in the controlling movement he can improve. This is the target with him.”
