Everton have completed a £50 million deal for Watford forward Richarlison.

The 21-year old Brazilian moves to Goodison Park for what’s thought to be an initial fee of £35 million with add-ons taking the deal to around £50 million.

Richarlison who scored five goals in his first 12 Premier League games links up with manager Marco Silva once again after the Portuguese signed him for Watford last Summer.

Despite his good start to the season, Richarlison did not score in the league from November to the end of the season and many have raised their eyebrows at the large fee the Brazilian has demanded.

He signs for the Goodison Park club on a five-year deal as Marco Silva looks to help them improve on a poor campaign last season which saw them struggle before eventually finishing eighth.
