Report: Chelsea's players want club to sign 25-year-old PL star

Report: Chelsea's players have been left seriously impressed by 25-year-old's aggression, want Tuchel to sign him

Everton forward Richarlison is reportedly someone that senior Chelsea players want the club to sign this summer after being impressed by him.

According to The Sun, some Chelsea stars are urging Blues manager Thomas Tuchel to complete a transfer for Richarlison.

It is understood the 25-year-old’s aggression and tenacity has helped convince players that he would be a success at Stamford Bridge if signed during this transfer window.

The report says Chelsea are rivalling Tottenham and Arsenal this summer in the bid to sign Everton’s attacker, who would cost around £50million.

Chelsea players want to sign Richarlison

Tuchel will surely have to pay close attention to the thoughts of his squad if there are several senior individuals banging the drum about Richarlison.

He’s a versatile forward that can play centrally or on the left wing. His game is centred around great energy and aggression wherever he plays, though.

The Everton star has 53 goals in 152 appearances for the Merseyside club to prove he can perform in English football. However, is he ready to now go and elevate his game at a higher level?

It’s been reported the Brazil international would be interested in joining Chelsea this summer.

Veteran Chelsea centre-back Thiago Silva, who plays alongside Richarlison for the national side, is definitely someone Tuchel should lean on for advice on this matter.
