Carlo Ancelotti wants to build Everton’s team around Richarlison and insists the club will stand firm if he attracts interest this summer.

The Brazil international, who only signed a new five-year deal in December, was linked with an £85million move to Barcelona at the beginning of this week. The story left high-ranking club officials bewildered and was greeted with similar bemusement in Catalonia.

The feeling persists, though, that the story will pre-empt significant speculation about Richarlison’s future at the end of the campaign. He will have been at the club for two years then and is yet to fulfil his ambition of wanting to play in European competition.
