PSG 'already in transfer talks with Everton striker Richarlison' as they find replacement for Real Madrid-bound Mbappe

PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN are considering a move for Everton star Richarlison, according to reports.

The French club are thought to be preparing for life without Kylian Mbappe after receiving transfer bids from Real Madrid.

According to ESPN Brazil, PSG will make a move for Richarlison, 24, IF they lose Mbappe in the final few days of the transfer window.

Real have made a second bid of £145million for the French striker, 22, who has just one year left on his existing deal.

PSG are said to be desperate to keep hold of Mbappe but may be forced into a sale as they won't want to lose him on a free transfer next summer.

The club's sporting director Leonardo, who has criticised Real's pursuit of the player, recently said: "PSG's position has always been to keep Kylian.

"That's been the aim for the last two years and it remains unchanged… and we are not going to sell a player for less than we paid for him."

But rumours suggest the Ligue 1 hopefuls will accept a bid of £154MILLION for Mbappe – just shy of the £162m they spent on him three years ago.

Richarlison's representatives are reportedly in Paris to negotiate a deal if PSG are forced to sign a last minute replacement for Mbappe.

Everton, however, will not want to lose their best player and could face a nervy end to the transfer window.

If the Toffees do agree to sell Richarlison, it's likely they will make a substantial profit on the £40m they spent on him in 2018.

The winger is one of the most exciting young players in England, helping Brazil win gold at the Tokyo Olympics earlier this summer.

He also won the Copa America in 2019 and has scored 34 goals in 107 Premier League games for Everton since his switch from Watford.
