Chelsea have joined London rivals Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur in the race to sign Everton forward Richarlison this summer. As per MailOnline (via Metro ), the Blues will look to sign the Brazilian after Romelu Lukaku's loan move to Inter Milan is confirmed.

Richarlison has been one of the mainstays in the Everton side since joining them from Watford in 2018. He's contributed 53 goals and 14 assists in 151 matches for the Toffees. He was one of the biggest reasons why Frank Lampard's side managed to avoid relegation last season.

He scored 10 goals and provided five assists in 30 Premier League matches. He is also versatile and can play as a centre-forward or on the left wing.

Hence, it is no surprise that the three London clubs are chasing him. Richarlison himself indicated his desire to leave the club last month, saying:

"I’ ve already made it clear to the board. I’ve already talked to Lampard too, with my agents and they know what I want. Let’s wait for June."

"Now I can’t talk, because when we talk about leaving a club I’m kind of like this, because of the history I have at Everton, the affection that the fans have for me. When we talk about leaving I’m a little speechless."


As per the aforementioned Metro report, the Brazilian could cost more than £51 million.
