Cape Town - Everton forward Richarlison is reportedly a transfer target for Spanish giants Barcelona after a fantastic season for the Toffees.

Barcelona are still reeling from their Champions League exit to Liverpool on Tuesday evening and reports are suggesting head coach Ernesto Valverde will oversee a big squad overhaul this summer.

Philippe Coutinho's time at the Camp Nou is expected to come to an end and the Brazilian could be replaced in Spain by compatriot Richarlison, who has been in impressive form for Everton this season.

The 22-year-old has scored 13 goals from 35 Premier League appearances since making the switch to Goodison Park from Watford last summer and has caught the eye of several top European clubs.

Barcelona are believed to have sent scouts to watch the forward over the past couple of weeks and they have been impressed with what they have seen, leading to claims an offer will be made.

It is thought a bid around £60million will be required for the Catalans to sign Richarlison.
