RICHARLISON has told Everton he wants to leave.
The Brazilian striker has Paris Saint-Germain, Chelsea and Real Madrid in his sights.
And Richarlison has moved to a new agency, CAA Base, which also has Goodison Park boss Frank Lampard and team-mate Dele Alli as clients.
The Everton hero, who is awaiting an FA verdict after being accused of tossing a flare back into the crowd in the Chelsea win, would face a fee of around £65million.
He joined from Watford for £50million four years ago and has eyed a two-season move to Paris.
Arsenal will be tempted to switch for the striker, who has a two-year contract and was instrumental in helping the Toffees endure last season’s struggle for survival.
Goodison boss Lampard would be reluctant to lose him.
But the frontman, who was involved in a weekend training match with Vinicius Jr while serving his country, has already made his position clear to the manager.
With Everton now cutting costs after narrowly avoiding a charge for breaching the Premier League’s financial fair play rules, the club are unlikely to stand in their way for asking the right price.
Majority owner Farhad Moshiri has absorbed losses of £372million over the past three years and has now ordered the club’s payroll costs to be cut by up to 70 per cent over the next two years.

In addition, the squad will be drastically reduced, which puts the future of Alli, Fabian Delph, Allan, Salomon Rondon and Andros Townsend in question.
Moshiri has spent almost £600million on new talent over the past six years.
But Lampard’s budget in the summer transfer market will be seriously limited, although Tottenham’s Harry Winks is a target.
Centre-back James Tarkowski is expected to complete a free transfer from Burnley within days.
And Lampard is also hoping to persuade Christian Eriksen to sign.
The Danish star spent the second half of last season at Brentford after recovering from cardiac arrest, but former clubs Tottenham and Manchester United could also sign for him.
