Marco Silva opens up on Richarlison and Gomes transfers

Everton manager Marco Silva has spoken about 2 of his new signings and believes that they will both be hits in the Premier League.

Brazilian Richarlison played under Silva at Watford, where he signed him from the Brazilian leagues and Andre Gomes came in on loan from Barcelona, despite being injured.

“My feeling since the first moment I saw him in Brazil is that he is a player with a very good profile to play here in the Premier League,” says Silva. “Of course some of the Brazilian players sometimes have some problems and some difficulties to adapt quickly here, but Richarlison has a different profile as a player. He is strong and he is not scared about challenges.”

Speaking about Gomes, Silva believes that his confidence is starting to come back following a disappointing 2 years in Barcelona.

“He’s happy now,” says Silva. “He’s enjoying what he’s doing, which is important for me, for him and for us as a club. He’s working really hard and he’s a very good player. I have no doubt that when he comes in he will help our squad to get better because he has a lot of quality.”
