Chelsea are reportedly ready to revive their interest in signing Brazil international Richarlison, who joined Everton from Watford in a deal worth up to £50m this summer.

Chelsea are still interested in signing Everton forward Richarlison, according to reports.

The Blues were linked with a move for the 21-year-old earlier this year following a bright start to life in English football with Watford.

However, Richarlison ultimately joined Everton and reunited with his former Watford boss Marco Silva in a deal which could rise to £50m, and he has gone on to score six goals in 12 league games for the Toffees.

Goal Brazil reports that Chelsea are continuing to monitor the forward, keeping close tabs on him ahead of the January transfer window reopening next month.

Richarlison's form so far this season has earned him an international debut, and he has hit the ground running for Brazil with three goals in his first six caps.

Everton are unwilling to sell the youngster so soon after bringing him to the club, though, and Chelsea would likely have to table a bid well in excess of £50m to prise him away from Goodison Park.
