Carlo Ancelotti has given Richarlison an ambitious target in an attempt to turn Everton into true European contenders.
The 13 goals and three assists of the Brazil forward represent 37 percent of the total Premier League goals of Everton this season.
He thus became the seventh largest single contributor to the league goals of a club this term.
Speaking to the club this week, Richarlison highlighted his intention to surpass the 20-goal mark next campaign. But Ancelotti wants him to score at least 30 goals next season.
“I believe Richarlison is incorrect to suggest that the aim will be 20,” Ancelotti told Sky Sports. “The target doesn’t have to be 20 for him. This should as a minimum be 30.
“I had got players who 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 also, in Britain, Didier Drogba hit 29 goals in one Premier League season alone. Perhaps the aim for Richarlison will be 30-not 20.”
