According to Sky, Everton “rejected the offer immediately” and are “unwilling to sell one of their prized assets as they look to strengthen their squad – rather than deplete it”.
Richarlison put pen to paper on a new long-term Goodison Park deal last month, when the 22-year-old pointed to the faith invested in him by Everton – and the overwhelming support from fans – as key factors in his decision to commit to the Blues long-term.
Richarlison told evertontv last month: “I intend to be here a long time.
“This was the club which gave me the opportunity to show my football.
“It was here I managed to get a place in the Brazil national team and it was here I have scored lots of goals in the Premier League.
“The Club trusts me and I trust them. The supporters have a lot of affection for me and I try to give back all this affection as much as possible on the pitch.
“I go out and put my life on the line for them. I try to sweat blood and tears for this club. I intend to continue honouring the shirt and making the fans happy.
