Two Premier League Giants Tussling It Out For Watford Star Richarlison

Watford winger Richarlison has been a revelation this season and you get the feeling that it's only a matter of time before he secures a bigger and better move.

The Brazilian joined the Hornets from Fluminense for a fee of £11 million in the summer in what has turned out to be a very tidy bit of business, with Richarlison well in contention when it comes to discussing the best signings of the season so far.

The 20-year old has four assists and five goals to his name in the Premier League and though he hasn't scored since November, which has coincided with a wretched run of form for Marco Silva's side, he is attracting serious interest from two of the league's big guns.

Football Manager wonderkids who flopped:

The Daily Mail reports that London pair Arsenal and Chelsea are keen on Richarlison and are eyeing up a summer move. Chelsea were briefly linked with him in July before Watford moved in and added him to their ranks.

Clearly their interest remains, though they will have to fend off competition from Arsenal, who have also reportedly been in touch with Richarlison's representatives.

The Brazil Under 20 international has struggled of late after an electric start in English football but on the basis of what we've seen so far, he would appear to have what it takes to play at a higher level.

If he does leave Vicarage Road in the summer, you'd back Watford to make a healthy profit on a player they bought for peanuts in the summer.
