Watford & Richarlison

Could Richarlison already be heading out the Watford exit door?

Until recently many were arguing that Richarlison was the signing of the summer for Watford.

Indeed, the 20-year-old Brazilian has settled into life in the Premier League far quicker and better than most. He’s scored five goals and added six assists already this season.

However, while Richarlison has slowed down a little in recent weeks, it’s now being reported that Arsenal and Chelsea are chasing his signature.

Arsenal & Chelsea open talks

On Sunday, Yahoo Brazil are reporting that Arsenal and Chelsea have already approached Watford and Richarlison’s agent Renato Velasco to enquire about a potential summer deal.

Aside from that nugget, the article was extremely light on details. It’s unclear, for example, how much Arsenal or Chelsea would offer Watford for their South American.

Either way Watford seem to be in a strong position to resist any deal.

Watford complete the signing of Richarlison from Fluminense for a fee of around £11.5 million. The youngster agreed to stay at Vicarage Road until 2022.
