The forward has netted six times in the league this season, already surpassing his tally of five last term, and captain Neymar believes the 21-year-old will keep improving.
“Everyone knows Richarlison is a great player and a really nice guy,” Neymar told the press on Thursday.
“He has the ability to change matches and perform in big games, as we are now seeing at Everton. I expect him to keep maturing and developing as his career moves forward.”
Richarlison has appeared four times for the Selecao since the World Cup, scoring twice on his only start against El Salvador in September.
