Arsenal, Chelsea and Spurs target refuses to rule out transfer

Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham have been handed in their interest in Richarlison after he admitted that his future is likely to be away from Watford.

The Hornets only signed the relatively unknown Brazilian last summer for £13m from Brazilian club Fluminese and he was an instant hit in the Premier League.

He started the season in fine form, scoring five goals in his first 12 Premier League appearances. Despite the fine start to season start, the goals have dried up somewhat, failing to add to his tally in his last 15 appearances, with his last goal coming on the 19th November.

However despite his dip in form, some of the Premier League’s biggest sides are interested in signing the 20-year-old, including Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham, and speaking to the London Evening Standard, Richarlison refused to rule out a move, but did admit he wants to remain in England.

He said:

“In the future you never know but I leave all things like that up to my agents.

“At the moment my head is completely in Watford. I am not thinking about anything else and I want to help the team get as far as possible in the league. That is my objective, that is my focus and nothing else.

“I want to play in this country for as long as possible. It is a great league and has been a great experience for me. I want to improve and playing in England can help me do that.”
