carlo ancelotti warns everton striker richarlison he must set his sights higher than 20 goals

Carlo Ancelotti has challenged Everton forward Richarlison to set himself a target of 30 goals next season. 

The Brazilian, who was linked with Barcelona in January, has managed 13 goals and three assists which account for 37 per cent of the Toffees’ overall Premier League goals this season.

Speaking to the club’s media this week, Richarlison outlined his ambitions to surpass the 20-goal mark in the next campaign but his manager believes he should be aiming higher.

‘I think Richarlison is wrong to say that the target will be 20,’ Ancelotti told Sky Sports

‘The target doesn’t have to be 20 for him. It should as a minimum be 30.

‘I’ve had strikers that were able to score 60 goals in a season – it doesn’t matter the name [Cristiano Ronaldo scored 61 goals in all competitions for Real Madrid in 2014/15].

‘But even in England, Didier Drogba scored 29 goals in one Premier League season alone. So the target for Richarlison will be 30 – not 20.’

Richarlison’s team-mate Dominic Calvert-Lewin has had his most prolific season in front of goal, also netting 13 times with one assist.

But despite the forward’s contributions, Everton have failed to mount a serious challenge for the European places and Ancelotti admitted his side must be more consistent in the 2020-2021 campaign.

‘At home, we’ve done well since I’ve been here. Where we need to improve, and the players know, is away from Goodison. 

‘We were not good enough and this is the step we need to take next season. We need to show a better knowledge and have a better identity.

‘The key factor will be the continuity in the sense that we cannot be allowed to play one good game and then two that aren’t good enough. It shouldn’t matter if it’s a home or an away game.’

And the Dutch Under-21 international, who’s made just nine appearances in the Europa and Premier Leagues, is keen to get more minutes under his belt. 

According to the Daily Mail, Bremen are eager to sign Chong on a two-year loan deal. 

However a loan fee and salary are reportedly yet to be finalised.

Werder sports director Frank Baumann said: “That we are in exchange is the case. We are in good talks. 

“Several parties are involved. Some things still have to be clarified and we have to agree. As of now, this is not the case.”

United are thought to be pressing ahead with plans to sign Dortmund star Jadon Sancho and Aston Villa skipper Jack Grealish. 

Should deals for both players go ahead, it is likely Chong could face an uphill struggle to get more game time at Old Trafford. 

The young Dutch winger is well thought of by Solskjaer, who backed the 20-year-old’s contract extension this year.

The new contract, signed in March, means Chong will remain with the club until June 2022. 

Other United players who are targets for Premiership and European sides include Diogo Dalot, Jesse Lingard, and Chris Smalling. 

Dalot is reported to have attracted interest from Everton while Newcastle United are rumoured to be keen on Lingard.
