Everton forward Richarlison says he wants the club to bring in another number 9 as he states that the Premier League demands a strong squad.
The Brazilian has been playing as striker for a number of games but has seen the supply lines cut short in recent matches and struggled to create chances for himself.
The former Watford man was speaking to Goal.com and said that it would be a big help to the club if another centre forward were signed, presumably hinting that he feels he could serve the team better as a wide man himself.
Richarlison signed from Watford in the summer for a big-money fee and hit the ground running, earning himself a call-up to the Brazilian senior squad, where he played as centre forward and scored his first international goals.
The 21 year old also said that he dreams of winning the Champions League, but says that he is happy in England and doesn’t have ambitions to play in any other specific league.
“I’ve been playing well, scoring a lot of goals, working hard and I’m enjoying being at the club very much. I’m very happy at Everton, it’s a very good club with very good structure. The fans love the club and the players,” he said.
“I’ve played a lot of games as a ‘9’, but if Everton get another player who plays in the position, it’s always good because the Premier League demands a very strong squad. It’s always good to have players who can help us in attack. If a 9 shirt comes, it will help us a lot.
“We are fighting and working hard to try to reach seventh or sixth place.
“I have the dream of playing at a World Cup and winning a Champions League. I do not have the desire to play in a specific league. The best league in the world is the Premier League and I’m happy here in England. Here, there are the best players in the world, the league is very difficult, is the most difficult, there are practically seven teams competing for the title. I’m very happy here.”
