Watford look set to land a real coup in the transfer market, with the club to sign Brazilian wonderkid Richarlison.

The Fluminense youngster, 19, was on the scoresheet five times in 14 outings at club level last season and has attracted interest from both Chelsea and Manchester United, as well as Europa League finalists Ajax.

He has confirmed his exit from Fluminense on Instagram, posting a heartfelt message to the club's fans:

But according to Sky Sports, Marco Silva's Watford will be his next destination, with the 20-year old reportedly already agreeing terms on a five-year contract for a fee of £13 million.

Richarlison is already in London, and has been pictured with Chelsea midfielder Willian.

Richarlison, who can play in all three forward positions, is slated to undergo a medical later today - with a work permit needing to be arranged for the signing to get the complete approval.

Should no issues arise, the Brazilian Under 20 international will become the Hornets' sixth signing of the summer.
