Manchester United have added Everton forward Richarlison to their list of transfer targets, according to the Evening Standard. The Red Devils have drawn up a list of six players with the Brazilian being the latest name to be considered.
Along with the 22-year-old, Mario Mandzukic, James Maddison, Moussa Dembele, Emre Can and Jadon Sancho are also players that are reportedly being watched. Supporters are very sceptical about the club’s interest in Richarlison:

Average Player. Solskjaer's transfers don't have a good current ability nor high potential ability and yet he expects them to do well…average coach

We already have to many average players

that'd be an awful purchase

He's decent but nothing really special

Richarlison is said to be the type of forward that manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking for. Reports earlier this week suggested that a right-sided player is a priority, and he could compliment Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford in a front three.
However, the Brazilian international is known for his inconsistency. He has only scored twice in the Premier League this season and both of those goals came in the same game against Wolves at the start of September.
