United in for Richarlison?

Everton forward Richarlison has reportedly emerged as a possible transfer target for Manchester United as they seek to bolster their attacking department next year.

Richarlison had an impressive first season with the Toffees last term and he ended the campaign with 14 goals across all competitions. He has not played with the same intensity this term but he has still managed four goals to date.

According to Globo Esporte, United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be aiming to strengthen the attack front at the turn of the year after parting ways with Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez (loan) over the summer without signing replacements.

It is added that the Norwegian is attracted by the ability of Richarlison and the club are monitoring the player's developments ahead of a potential winter approach.

United have been hugely disappointing in the attacking point of view this season and they have already been outscored by 12 teams in the Premier League.

They are presently lying in the 10th spot in the league standings and are already 10 points behind Chelsea, who are occupying the final Champions League spot.
