Many Everton fans have been reacting on Twitter to a recent post by Richarlison, as the Brazilian shared his gratitude to the supporters after signing a new contract.

Richarlison has put pen to paper on a one-year extension, likely on improved terms, which will keep the 22-year-old at Goodison Park until the summer of 2024.

His previous £90,000-per-week deal signed upon his arrival on Merseyside last year made Richarlison our eighth-highest paid player, with Bernard and Yerry Mina topping the club’s wage bill on contracts worth £120,000-p/w.

Richarlison moved to Goodison Park from Watford for a potential £50million in July 2018, and has since scored 20 goals in 55 appearances across all competitions.

The versatile forward, who has been deployed at striker and on both wings since joining the club, has been a key aspect of manager Marco Silva’s plans and is yet to miss a starting line-up in the Premier League this season.

He also made his senior Brazil debut in September 2018, and has gone on to represent his country in a total of 19 matches, scoring six goals.

Richarlison’s new deal was announced the day before we face Liverpool in the Merseyside Derby at Anfield on Wednesday night, and the forward will be wearing the Royal Blue jerseys with pride should he feature.

What will the result be at Anfield?

“Thank you for your trust and love Everton, and all Evertonians!” Richarlison shared on Twitter after signing his new contract. “It’s a pleasure and an honour to be able to wear this shirt, and to know that we can have an even longer journey together. Love you all!”
