Watford’s Brazilian forward Richarlison is set to have a medical at Everton with a view to a move that could be worth up to £50m.
Richarlison made a flying start to last season’s Premier League under new Toffees boss Marco Silva, scoring five goals in his first 12 games.
However, he endured a long barren run after Silva left Vicarage Road following a downturn in form that appeared to stem from Everton’s pursuit of him.
With the 21-year-old set to reunite with the man who brought him to England, here are the best jokes as Everton close in on Richarlison:
If Richarlison goes for 50 million then i must be worth at least a few grand in this market

Can't believe they're taking the money out of my bank to pay for Richarlison. Disgrace.

Give it a couple of days and it will come out that Everton met with who they thought was Richarlison's agent but was actually Sacha Baron Cohen in disguise…

Paying £50m for Richarlison is like paying £500 for a pint 🍺

Richarlison. When the selling club quotes £15m, the buying club mishears and nobody bothers to correct them.

Juventus must be kicking themselves for spending £100m on Ronaldo when they could have had Richarlison and Sigurdsson.

Me and Richarlison have exactly the same number of Premier League goals and assists in 2018.

If Watford get £50M for Richarlison then they should automatically be put in charge of Brexit negotiations.
