Brazilian star Richarlison is a wanted man this summer — with Atletico Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain both ready to step up their chase for the £70million-rated Everton striker.
And senior Goodison officials fear they could be in a battle to keep hold of the 22-year-old, who only joined them last July in a £40m move from Watford.
Richarlison has been a big success and heads into Sunday’s final game of the season away to Spurs having scored 14 goals in 38 Everton appearances. But it is understood he wants the promise of European football to continue his development and help him keep his place in Brazil's national team.
So far, missing out on European football has not impacted on his international career with Richarlison scoring three goals in his eight games for his country this season.
