He did not play well for half a season he played well for about a fifth of it . £24m would be about right and still too much .
Have you bothered to look into any reason as to why his form tailed off?
Two very possible reasons.
1. The silva departure and playing under a manager who played a very pragmatic style of football not suited towards Richarlison.
2. He played 18 months straight football without any breaks, and had to adapt his body to the increasing demand of the premier league during that time. Very possible he was burnout as I donít recall him playing much towards the final third of the season.
Heís proven he can perform to a high standard in the premier league. Taking into account what Watford paid for him, his form in the first half of the season, his potential, inflation, i would say 35mil is just about right.
To use a comparison; Leicester have paid 25mil for James Maddison, a player who has never played premier league football. This is the market we are in today.
