Everton links to Armando Broja could mean Richarlison Chelsea switch

Everton have been linked with a permanent move for Chelsea striker Armando Broja – and that could mean that Richarlison is on his way out of Goodison Park.

It was reported by 90min on Tuesday 21 June that Everton are keen on the 20-year-old striker who would command a fee of over £30million.

However, it was claimed by The Daily Mail on Monday 20 June that Chelsea are set to compete with Tottenham and Arsenal for the Richarlison’s signature.

With news of Everton targeting another striker, it could well mean that the Toffees’ hierarchy are preparing for the 25-year-old to potentially leave the club in the coming weeks.

Furthermore, there could well be a potential swap deal plus cash if the Toffees want to bring Broja to Goodison Park and send Richarlison the other way.

That would be an excellent deal for Everton, with the Albanian striker only 20 years old and likely to develop in the coming years.

The sale of Richarlison could generate some much-needed cash for Frank Lampard to play with in the coming months as he looks to revamp his Everton squad.

Lampard’s links to Chelsea could put the Toffees in a good position to land the Chelsea youngster as well as use Chelsea’s interest in Richarlison to generate a sale.

Broja is exactly the type of player that Everton need to be targeting.

He’s young, has Premier League experience, and could be sold on for a significantly higher price.

This is certainly a transfer saga to keep an eye on in the coming weeks.
