Richarlison hopes to be pigeon dancing for the Everton fans very soon as he targets a flying start to his Toffees career.

The Brazilian forward has linked up with boss Marco Silva again after a £40million move from Watford and should make his Everton debut against Wolves on Saturday.

It is not just on the pitch where Richarlison likes to show off nifty footwork, and he will stick to his social media promise to Everton fans to strut his stuff should he find the net.

The 21-year-old said: "I'm hoping to score my first goal and do the dance that I promised, the pigeon dance, so I look forward to it and it's good that the fans are waiting for it."

Richarlison could soon have a new dancing partner, with Everton heavily linked with a move for Colombian defender Yerry Mina from Barcelona.

"Yerry Mina's a great guy, and he's also a great dancer," said Richarlison. "When he played for Palmeiras he'd always celebrate with a dance. We became friends and I speak to him regularly. I've not asked him any questions about his future, that's an issue for his people to deal with.

"I'm happy to be working with Marco Silva again, it's a pleasure. I've always played well under Marco and I get on very well with him."
