Everton signed Richarlison from Watford for a club-record fee of €45m and the forward has impressed for the Toffees by scoring three goals in three Premier League appearances.

His form for the club saw him being selected by Tite for the Brazil squad and the 21-year-old scored a brace on his full debut against El Salvador.

Following his good start to the season, both for club and country, the South American player sat down with Spanish newspaper AS’ Brazilian reporter Fernando Kallás, in which he spoke about various topics, including his rise after he almost decided to quit playing football.

Since 2015, he has been at four clubs and has not spent more than one season in the last three years at América Mineiro, Fluminense and the Hornets respectively.

Everton’s summer signing admitted that a “dream” move to another club will depend on how he performs at Goodison Park.

“You’re putting me in a tight spot there… (laughs). They [Real Madrid and Barcelona] are two giant clubs, the dream of any player. But I’ve just arrived at Everton and I’m happy,” Richarlison said.

“In the end, the next step will depend a lot on what I do here. So I’m hoping to do a lot of great things at Everton, win something important and return the confidence of the club and the fans. That’s my big motivation right now.”
