Brazil forward Richarlison says he is fully focused on performing at Everton despite reported interest from Barcelona and Real Madrid.
The 21-year-old has made a strong start to the season after his high-profile switch from Watford to Goodison Park over the summer.
Richarlison has grabbed even more headlines after scoring two goals for his country in the 5-0 win over El Salvador during the international break.
The starlet’s performances have not gone unnoticed and there have been rumblings of interest from the Camp Nou and the Santiago Bernabeu.
Richarlison says he has heard of the interest from Barca and Los Blancos but is fully focused on life on Merseyside, cooling talk of him moving to La Liga.
“They are two giants, the dream of any player. But I just got to Everton, I’m very happy,” he said.
”The next step will depend a lot on what I do here. I hope to do a lot of good things in Everton, to win something significant and to give back the confidence of the club and the fans. This is my great motivation right now.”
”?I hope to have a great season, to continue helping Everton and to finally win a spot in the Brazilian national team. These are my goals. ”
”Of course, everything can change over time. The bar can go up and the steps can be bigger and more ambitious. It takes a lot of work and to maintain concentration for that to happen. And hopefully it happens.”
