According to UOL Esporte in Brazil, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp recently had a meeting with Richarlison's agent Renato Velasco at his house.
Velasco has since told Sport Witness that he did not meet Klopp to discuss the 21-year-old Brazil international forward.
Liverpool fans have been giving their take on the youngster on Twitter, and below are some of the best comments:
Richarlison to @LFC... I really really hope it happen— Abu Umar Khalid (@Abu_UmarKhalid) April 6, 2019
I want LFC to sign Richarlison just to piss the hell out of Everton fans. Even better if we sign him for a lower fee than what they paid for him. Imagine their faces— Mark (@TheLFCMark) April 5, 2019
All the chatter from Brazil saying richarlison may bcum to LFC we don't fkn want him he's not gud enough for us— Paulie B (@paulbra32642821) April 5, 2019
Not sure if all the Richarlison rumours are true. But if you get over the fact he plays for Everton, he could be a handy signing. Plus he’s another Brazilian in the books...— LFC Fan (@LFCFan09022011) April 5, 2019
I see Silly Season has started linking us with Richarlison REALLY?! I mean why would we go for him?! #LFC— Douglas (Statman Doug) (@Enrohd_1992) April 5, 2019
Richarlison is a very good and promising young attacking player, and the former Watford star will enhance the quality of the Liverpool attack.
However, it is hard to see Everton do business with Liverpool, especially over a player who is one of their most prized assets.
Richarlison joined Everton from Watford in the summer of 2018 for a transfer fee reported by The Telegraph to be worth £40 million.
The youngster has made 27 starts and three substitute appearances in the Premier League for Everton so far this season, scoring 12 goals and providing one assist in the process, according to WhoScored.
