‘Could actually happen’ – Insider confirms intent for potential Arsenal signing

Transfer insider Dean Jones claims that there is substance behind the rumours linking Everton’s Richarlison with a move to Arsenal this summer.

The Brazilian has been a bright shining light for the Merseyside club ever since joining from Watford in 2018 for a £50 Million fee, but having fallen to within touching distance of the relegation zone as opposed to challenging for the European places, you could forgive him for considering his future.

With just two years remaining on his current contract, it seems like the ideal opportunity for his club to cash-in on his signature, at risk of seeing his value plummet as he draws closer to the end of his deal.

While that doesn’t necessarily mean that Arsenal would be in line for his signature, Jones insists that there is something behind the rumour however.

He told GiveMeSport: “It’s been mooted before and, as I understand it, it’s something that could actually happen in the summer as well.”

While I would love to see Richarlison signed to lead the line, the question on people’s minds would be on his best role. He can play at centre-forward which would likely be where he would play if we was to sign him, but you could argue that his best performances come playing as the second-striker.

In our system however, I think he could thrive as our main outlet in front of goal, and even if we did have to shell out £50 Million for his signature, I think that could still prove to be a bargain.

  1. He’d be a fine backup striker if laca leaves, but that’s it for me. Too expensive for that kind of role

  2. lordy i really hope not. Wont be winning us titles and for heavems sake the man is incapable of raising a smile, worse than Anelka le sulk!

  3. Don’t think he’s our answer for the striker position. Too expensive, doubt we would see him come good in productivity or resale value.

    Keep shopping I say, jog on.

  4. These were the same comments we made when we wanted to buy Odegaard.

    And at the end of the day……..

    1. These were the same comments we made when we wanted to buy Willian.

      And at the end of the day……..

  5. We said Dembele had attitude problems, was injury prone, now see how he’s become barcelona’s Best player,

    Richarlison is a hard worker, good in the air, fast and I’m sure he’ll make a good striker, all we need is 2 more goal scoring CMs, and another CF, then we’ll be a terror to any team in the EPL,

  6. Is he not the cheap route for a striker ? Is he even a striker? Would rather go for Antonio than him!!

  7. I think he is what we need up front, would be great to see Martinelli on the left wing and Saka on the right wing . That combination would be tremendous Richardson is fast and he is strongly bild as a forward should be. The price is reasonably and we should not miss out , the reason for me to have him in the team he is aware of the premiere league which is the best place for him to excel as a center forward.
