Marco Silva describes what Richarlison will bring to Everton

Everton boss Marco Silva has described the qualities that new signing Richarlison will bring to the club next season.

Everton completed the £40 million signing of Brazilian winger Richarlison on Tuesday, just 12 months after his £12 million move to the Premier League.

He made a sensational start to life in England, scoring five goals in his first 12 games for Watford. However, Marco Silva’s departure from Vicarage road coincided with a goal drought which saw him fail to score a goal from November onwards.

Despite his goal drought, Silva thinks Richarlison’s versatility and work ethic will make him a great success at Goodison Park.

“He is one more player who can help us,” said the Portuguese boss to the Everton website.

“He is a good player who will make our team and our squad more competitive.

“The competition between our players is really important to me. This is what will make us better as a club, always that competition within the squad.

“The player himself is fast, strong, very good technically, and he can play in three positions across the front line. He can also score goals.

“Evertonians will see a player who will be 100 per cent committed to helping our team always.”
