Shock claims from Brazil suggest that Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has arranged a secret meeting with Richarlison’s agent
If reports from UOL Esporte turn out to be true, the German manager has recently met Renato Velasco – a manager of Everton star, at his house.
With Mohamed Salah’s drop-off in form, ex-Borussia Dortmund tactician has become aware he needs a reliable backup option in the final third.
But, signing one of the hottest prospects in the Premier League won’t be a simple task, especially considering the rivalry between Everton and Liverpool.

There’s no doubt Richarlison would become the most hated man in Merseyside should he switch his allegiance to Liverpool.
However, the 5-time Champions League winners will have to beat fierce competition from AC Milan who have already expressed their interest in former Fluminense man.
The Toffees have already slapped a whopping £60 million price tag on their forward, but there’s a good chance they will ask for more should Liverpool boss decides to step up his interest.
The 21-year-old Brazilian has netted 13 goals in 33 top-flight outings for Marco Silva’s side this campaign following his £35million arrival from Watford in the summer.
