Everton Sign Richarlison Andrade From Watford
Everton completes the signing of 21 year old Richarlison from Watford in one of the Premier League’s biggest transfers of the summer so far.
The Brazilian signed a five year deal with Everton worth £40 million, potentially rising to £50m
The Forward followed his former boss Marco Silva to Everton and admitted he played a key part in his transfer. He has become his first signing since taking over the club.
The Brazilian told Everton’s club website:
“I want to have a lot of success with Everton.
“I think it is going to be important for me to be with Marco Silva again. I will learn more, because I am still learning as a player and I aim to develop and grow here.
“Everton have put their faith in me and I intend to honour this shirt and demonstrate on the pitch why I came here.
“I’ve known the manager for a while, obviously, so I know how he works.
“I developed really well with him while he was with me at Watford.
“It was really good working with him and, one day, I believe he can help me to be selected for Brazil in the full national team.
