Newcastle United have been handed an offer to sign a highly rated £50 million Premier League forward. 

Reports from Newcastle indicate that Richarlison de Andrade’s representatives have been in touch with Newcastle United seeking the Brazilian’s transfer from Everton this summer.

The report goes on to state that Newcastle are “open” to the possible thought of a potential switch.

However, the Merseyside club is keen on demanding a transfer fee of around £50m in this particular deal.

Everton have greatly relied on the services of Richarlson amid turbulent times at Goodison Park this season. The former Watford forward has also been delivering when it mattered the most.

He scored the only goal to help Frank Lampard’s relegation-threatened charges beat Chelsea over the weekend to revive their survival hopes in the league.

His fine form before the goal has seen him score eight goals and register four assists in 24 league appearances this campaign. 

After links to the likes of Darwin Nunez, Hugo Ekitike and Ivan Toney to reinforce Newcastle’s attacking front, Eddie Howe will arguably not ignore the possible addition of Richarlson to his squad as he seeks to build a force to be reckoned with in the Premier League starting next season. 

Whether Everton survives the relegation threat or not, Richarlson is also reported to be on his way out.
