Everton winger and newly crowned youngster of the Premier League, Richarlison, has been temped by a move to Barcelona as of late.

The 21-year-old’s displays at Everton this season have caused scouts to take a look at the South American star as a potential transfer target for the next couple years, according to Mundo Deportivo.

Now it’s also worth mentioning that Richarlison had a little interview with AS not so long ago when he talked about Barcelona and Real Madrid.

“You’re putting me in a tight spot there… (laughs). They [Real Madrid and Barcelona] are two giant clubs, the dream of any player. But I’ve just arrived at Everton and I’m happy,” he said.

“In the end, the next step will depend a lot on what I do here. So I’m hoping to do a lot of great things at Everton, win something important and return the confidence of the club and the fans. That’s my big motivation right now.”

Of course, just about every player probably says that about Real and Barcelona. Everything is fine and dandy till PSG come and offer you an island instead of a salary.
