Richarlison played a key role in helping Everton escape relegation last season.

The Brazilian is now being linked with a summer transfer move from Everton, and Chelsea are one of the clubs that have been linked with the Everton star.

Former Everton striker Kevin Campbell has told Everton boss Frank Lampard to leverage Chelsea’s interest in Richarlison.

Campbell has told his former club to sell Richarlison and use the funds from the sale to strengthen his squad.

He also stated that Chelsea have players that could be added in a swap deal.

He said: “One thing I don’t think will happen is Everton stand in [Richarlison’s] way. I think the fact of the matter is he’s a tradable piece that could bring in a significant amount of funds.

“So as far as I’m concerned Frank Lampard has to juggle. I think Dominic Calvert-Lewin, there’s talk of him leaving.

“I don’t see him going. But I do see Richarlison maybe exploring the exit.

“You can’t lose the both of them in one window, that’s for sure. If you’re going to lose one then I think because of the season that Richarlison had, even though it was a difficult season, he still shone.

“I could see any one of those teams going for him. But the fact of the matter is Chelsea, they’ve got bargaining pieces as well.

“Frank Lampard knows that club and there’s a couple of tradable pieces that might just slot in to Everton pretty well.”
