Chelsea and Arsenal eye summer swoop for Watford winger Richarlison

Chelsea and Arsenal are chasing Watford winger Richarlison according to reports.

The Brazilian only arrived in the Premier League last summer, making an £11.2m move from Fluminense, and instantly became a hit, scoring five goals in his first 12 games.

 

However, since then, he has failed to hit the net since November, with the winger admitting he is finding it tougher to perform:

“Teams are already marking me individually, they are putting two players there on my side.

“Unfortunately it’s difficult, but I’m doing what I can.

“I’m facing them, I’m making assists, I’m trying to score my goals. I’ll keep working to keep bringing the results.”

Despite a dip in the 20-year-old’s dip in form, the players agent claims that Arsenal and Chelsea are keen to sign the winger, and will make a move to sign him this summer.

However, Watford will not let go of the youngster so easily, as they proved when Everton came calling for manager Marco Silva. Richarlison is under contract with the Hornets until 2022, and will command a top fee.
