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

Richarlison for 50m is like buying a Nokia brick for a grand

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…

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.
