The Brazil international has made 55 appearances for the club since following Marco Silva from Watford last year, scoring 20 goals and claiming four assists.

"I intend to be here a long time," Richarlison told evertontvThis was the club which gave me the opportunity to show my football.


"It was here I managed to get a place in the Brazil national team and it was here I have scored lots of goals in the Premier League.

"The club trusts me and I trust them. The supporters have a lot of affection for me and I try to give back all this affection as much as possible on the pitch.

"I go out and put my life on the line for them. I try to sweat blood and tears for this club. I intend to continue honouring the shirt and making the fans happy.

"And I hope they continue singing my name."

Richarlison is only entering his third season in the Premier League, having joined Watford from Fluminense in an £11m deal in 2017.
