Richarlison's agent explains Jurgen Klopp meeting

Richarlison's agent explains Jurgen Klopp meeting

"It has nothing to do with Richarlison, the people who made the link have added one thing to another".

Everton spent £35m to bring the 21-year-old to Goodison Park last summer, and the club have no intention of letting him go, although Chelsea and Barcelona are also said to be interested.

And one supporter took the opportunity to take a dig at rivals Liverpool.

The 21-year-old Brazilian worldwide has done enough this season to turn heads, and UOL Esporte says Liverpool are amongst those interested.

Reports from Brazilian source UOL Esporte on Thursday suggested Jurgen Klopp had already gone as far as meeting Richarlison's agent, Renato Velasco, at his home with a view to securing a first transfer between Everton and Liverpool since Abel Xavier in 2002.

Everton boss Marco Silva has brushed off talk that Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp held a meeting with Richarlison's agent.

"The club made a big effort to sign with him because we were 100 per cent sure he would fit with our club".

Richarlison tweeted two pictures of him playing for Everton with the caption: "I'm happy". The rivalry in Merseyside is so fierce, so for a player to join the Reds from Everton would anger many. Everton are now 10th in the Premier League points table and the focus of the team and Richarlison will be in helping the team finish on a higher note.

"We have to keep our best players".

The chances of Everton keeping Richarlison, though, look somewhat slim.
