Erik ten Hag wants Premier League forward as one of his Manchester United signings

Manchester United’s new boss Erik ten Hag has reportedly identified Everton forward Richarlison to be one of his signings at Old Trafford.

Ten Hag would become Man United manager at the end of the season, when he will have replaced interim manager, Ralf Rangnick, who replaced Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in November.

With several senior players set on leaving the Manchester club in the summer, the 52-year-old Dutchman is expected to rebuild the United squad in the summer.

As a result, a host of top players have been linked with moves to Old Trafford and Daily Express have reported that Erik ten Hag wants Richarlison at Manchester United.

The report covers that the Dutch tactician wants to orchestrate a mass reshape at United, starting with the signing of the Everton forward.

The 25-year-old Brazilian has made 27 Premier League appearances this term and scored 8 goals in the process, though his individual performances haven’t completely rescued Everton off relegation this term.

Richarlison moved to Everton four seasons ago from Watford for a reported £50million transfer fee.

He was also a transfer target for Manchester United last season under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Should Richarlison successfully move to Old Trafford, he would compete with the likes of Marcus Rashford, Anthony Elanga and Jadon Sancho for a place across the front line.
