Tom Davies has praised Richarlison for visiting his now-old Everton teammates after his transfer to Tottenham Hotspur was confirmed, as he told ¡Qué Golazo!

The Everton midfielder added that Tottenham’s new capture is a ‘great player’ and he wishes him ‘all the best’ at the Champions League side.

But when players across England started to return to pre-season, Richarlison decided to pay everyone at Everton a visit whilst they were in training and say his final goodbyes.

Davies spoke about the forward’s actions and how everyone at Goodison Park is a close-knit group, especially given what they went through last season.

“I wish Richarlison’s all the best in the future and I hope he goes onto great things,” said Davies. “He’s a great player and he was a great teammate to have. He always worked hard, so I wish him all the best.

“Last year, we had a big connection throughout the squad and I think he wanted to come, check in with us all and not leave without saying bye because the squad that we have now is so close.

“We really are like one big unit and a big family, so that was nice for him to do.”

Everton still haven’t replaced Richarlison or added to their forward line, despite the player’s transfer taking place weeks ago.

Frank Lampard’s side, who survived relegation by the skin of their teeth last time out, are the ones who have been hit hard by Richarlison’s transfer.

Yes, the financially-hit club have got a good chunk of money from his sale, but the Brazil star’s six goals in Everton’s last nine games last season, just proves how important he was to them.

Yet, other than centre-back James Tarkowski arriving on a free transfer from Burnley, they haven’t made any other signings.

Losing 4-0 to an MLS side during pre-season doesn’t help matters either, nor does Lampard warning his players about another potential relegation battle, either way, a pretty tricky season could be awaiting those on Merseyside.
