Richarlison agent opens up after meeting with Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp
The agent of Everton star Richarlison has admitted that a meeting with Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp was not about the much talked about winger.
With Liverpool eyeing up possible summer signings as Klopp needs to continue improving the squad in certain areas, there has been some speculation in the media over the past few weeks which have suggested that Liverpool may try to raid their rivals and secure a deal for the £30 million rated Brazilian.
Richarlison joined Everton last summer from Watford and has been impressing for the Toffees, with his performances also catching the eye of Chelsea, Manchester United and even Tottenham, who are all in the market for another winger.
Klopp recently met agent Renato Velasco at his house and that sent media outlets wild with speculation that a potential move to Anfield for Richarlison, but the agent says he only met with Klopp as he was facilitating a meeting between the German and his former Mainz team-mate Marcos Weisshaupt.
“So my meeting with Klopp had nothing to do with Richarlison,” Velasco is quoted as telling Sport Witness.
“I am an agent of a player of Germany (Noah Weisshaupt), of Freiburg and Germany U20, where his father played with Klopp and they’re friends. So they did not see each other in time and I went to his house to take Marcos.
“It has nothing to do with Richarlison, the people who made the link have added one thing to another.”
Could Liverpool make a move for Richarlison?
Richarlison has ambitions to play at the very top of the game and would surely be interested in a move to Liverpool if the possibly became a reality, but it would be a massive shock to see him leave Everton just 12 months after signing for the club.
He could be a decent squad member, but it will surely not happen.
