Former Everton defender Keown questions Richarlison deal

Former Everton defender Martin Keown has questioned their deal for Richarlison.

Marco Silva splashed out £40m to bring in the forward from Watford this summer having worked with him during his brief spell in charge at Vicarage Road.

“Well obviously his manager knows all about him, Silva has brought him in," Keown told the Daily Star.

“I do feel he's a good player but he was a little bit of a nearly man last season.

“Things didn't quite come off for him but he's showed really good signs and I'm not surprised at all that one of the big clubs has come after him because he's got great ability on that left hand side, good pace.

“If you look now at Everton with Theo Walcott on one wing and Richarlison on the other they look now to have that threat."
