Richarlison finished both his opening two seasons with Everton as the Club's joint-top scorer – in the Premier League and across all competitions.
In a personally excellent 2019/20 – which Richarlison began flushed with confidence following his involvement in Brazil's home Copa America success during the off season – he scored 13 league goals from 36 appearances and added two more in the Carabao Cup.
Those tallies mirrored the returns of fellow striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin.
Equally, Richarlison's 13 top-flight strikes equalled his total from the previous season, when he shared top-scoring honours with Gylfi Sigurdsson.
The player's 15 goals in all-competitions surpassed the 14 he netted in 2018/19 – a number again matched by midfielder Sigurdsson.
Richarlison joined Everton from Watford in July 2018, reuniting with then manager Marco Silva, who brought the attacker to England 12 months previously when Hornets boss.
Two goals on his debut at Wolverhampton Wanderers set the tone for a fabulous first campaign which finished with Richarlison named the Club's young player of the season.
His first senior Brazil call-up arrived five weeks after coming to Everton. The explosive forward netted twice on his full debut for the five-times world champions as they beat El Salvador 5-0 in Washington DC and he has remained a regular in boss Tite's squads.
Richarlison launched his professional career with America Mineiro as an 18-year-old in 2015 and hit the ground running.
The forward scored 10 minutes after coming off the bench on his first appearance for the Belo Horizonte side and, operating primarily as a central striker, hit another eight goals to help his team win promotion into Brazil’s top-flight.
He was signed by four-times national champions Fluminense in December 2015 and on his league debut away to former team America Mineiro created the only goal of the game for former Brazil striker Fred.
Richarlison’s speed, skill and physicality ensured he quickly became one of Fluminese’s most influential figures and led manager Abel Braga to describe him as “a complete player”.
He has been capped 10 times by his country’s Under-20 team and scored on his international debut against England at St George’s Park in September 2016. The player was one of the stars of the following year’s South American Under-20 Championship, finding the net twice in the tournament in Ecuador to further swell his burgeoning reputation.
Richarlison was raised in the Brazilian municipality of Nova Venecia and left his homeland for Watford after scoring 19 goals in 67 matches for Fluminense.
The attacker swiftly acclimatised to Premier League football, scoring on his full debut for the Hornets in a 2-0 victory at Bournemouth and winning rave reviews for a sequence of assertive and vibrant performances.
