Transfer Talk: PSG eye Richarlison to replace wantaway Mbappe
Paris Saint-Germain are ready to make a move for Everton forward Richarlison.
The French giants expect to sell Kylian Mbappe to Real Madrid before the window shuts and have identified the Brazilian as his replacement.
According to ESPN, Richarlison's agents have already started discussing a potential move in Paris.
Everton are said to be aware of the situation but it is not clear how much they would want for the 24-year-old.
Richarlison has netted 43 times in 121 games for the Toffees and cost them £50million when he swapped Watford for Goodison Park in 2018.
But with PSG set to pocket a whopping £180m from the sale of Mbappe, it is likely the fee will be substantially higher.
The report adds that negotiations between Real and PSG regarding Mbappe are set to accelerate, which could see the Richarlison move develop quickly.
Everton travel to Brighton tomorrow and it may end up being his final game for the club.
It would leave Toffees boss Rafa Benitez with a substantial transfer kitty to use before the window shuts on Tuesday evening.
Reds open Bissouma discussions
Liverpool have finally made a move for highly-rated Brighton midfielder Yves Bissouma.
The Reds have been linked with Bissouma, 24, all summer.
And an impressive start to the campaign for the Seagulls has convinced Jurgen Klopp that now is the right time to make a move, say The Express.
Liverpool, who have picked up maximum points from their opening two games, are yet to replace midfielder Gini Wijnaldum and look set to strengthen.
But after selling Ben White to Arsenal for £50m, Brighton are under no pressure to part with the Mali international and would want £40m for him.
Liverpool are not the only club interested with Manchester United and Arsenal also tracking Bissouma.
The Seagulls had opened talks about a new contract but Graham Potter may now lose one of his key performers.
