Manchester United are being linked with a big-money move for an Everton attacker, while Wolves are set to rival Arsenal for a Croatia defender, according to Friday’s papers.



Everton attacker Richarlison is the latest player being considered by Manchester United as they plan a major revamp of their squad this summer.

Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is understood to want as many as five new signings, including a versatile forward.

Borussia Dortmund’s England winger Jadon Sancho is already among the targets, but a report in the Daily Telegraph claims that there has also been a discussion over Richarlison – who play out wide or through the middle.

The Toffees only signed Richarlison on a five-year contract from Watford in a potential £50million deal last summer and while they are not keen to sell, it is rumoured that Everton have slapped a €75m (£69m) price tag on the 21-year-old.

The forward is the club’s top scorer with 14 goals this season but is a doubt for the weekend clash with Crystal Palace after suffering a suspected rib injury in last weekend’s thumping win over Manchester United.

European heavyweights Barcelona and AC Milan have also been linked with a move for the player, but United could steal a march over their rivals if Richarlison decides that he wants to remain in England.
