Despite the rumours of exit talks fueled by the rumours that Richarlison’s agent had a meeting with Jurgen Klopp, Everton have maintained that they are not interested in selling the player.
Now, via a report published in the Liverpool Echo, we can confirm that most of these rumours have been baseless, as the agent has confirmed he did not meet Klopp to discuss Richarlison’s future.
“So my meeting with Klopp had nothing to do with Richarlison.
“I am an agent of a player of Germany (Noah Weißhaupt), of Freiburg and the U20 of Germany, where his father played with Klopp and they’re friends. So they did not see each other in time and I went to his house to take Marcos (the father).
“It has nothing to do with Richarlison, the people who made the link have added one thing to another.”
Richarlison, who has seen the back of the net 13 times this season for Everton, is very much part of Marco Silva’s long-term plan.
