Chelsea still keen on landing Richarlison

Chelsea are understood to have maintained their interest in Brazil international Richarlison despite him only joining Everton during the summer transfer window.

The 21-year-old was regularly linked with the Blues during the summer after his decent first season with Watford but their reluctance to make an approach saw the Toffees capitalise to sign him in a deal which could rise to £50m.

Richarlison has since quickly settled to the new surroundings with six goals in the space of just 12 Premier League games and Goal Brazil suggests that his form has recaptured the attention from Maurizio Sarri's side.

Nonetheless, the Toffees have no immediate plans of parting ways with the youngster and the Blues may have to come up with a club-record package in order to test the resolve of the Merseyside outfit at the turn of the year.

Richarlison's bright form with his new club has already made him a regular with the Brazilian national team for whom he has contributed three goals from six caps.
