Everton has apparently rejected an initial 85 million pound approach from Barcelona for striker Richarlison.

Barcelona has apparently launched an audacious bid for Everton forward Richarlison. The Catalan club has apparently gone in with an opening bid of 85 million pounds, which is over €100 million.

The Camp Nou based club is in a desperate search for reinforcements in the forward position. Luis Suarez is expected to be out for several months following a serious knee injury.

They were rumored to be in advanced negotiations with Valencia for Rodrigo, but that deal collapsed earlier today.

According to Sky Sports, they have turned their attention to Everton’s Brazilian goal scorer.

Richarlison only signed an improved deal with the Merseysiders last month in an attempt to ward off interest from Europe’s elite.

It remains to be seen if Barca will come back with an improved offer.
