Chelsea FC are interested in a deal to sign Everton star Richarlison, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Star is reporting that the Blues are “huge admirers” of the 21-year-old Brazilian, who is also attracting interest from a host of Europe’s other top clubs.

The same report says that the likes of AC Milan, Paris Saint-Germain and Atletico Madrid are all also keeping a close eye on the attacker ahead of the summer transfer window.

The article goes on to report that Everton are “bracing themselves” for a battle to try and keep hold of Richarlison this summer.

It also states that the Toffees would demand a transfer fee of at least £80m before considering selling him, after they signed him for £40m for Watford last summer.

The attacking midfielder has been in good form for Everton of late and he has scored 10 goals and made one assist in 25 Premier League appearances so far this season.

He has also netted once in two FA Cup games to continue his strong start to life since his move to Merseyside last summer.

Chelsea FC are likely to be linked with a number of players this summer as they look to assemble a squad capable of challenging for the title next season.
