Arsenal and Chelsea join race for Watford star

Recent reports have claimed that Arsenal, Tottenham and now Chelsea are both keen on acquiring Watford star attacker Richarlison

Richarlison has four goals in 11 Premier League appearances and has generally impressed with his skills and pace on the left flank.

And Watford coach Marco Silva is not surprised that Brazilian star Richarlison is attracting admiring glances from bigger clubs amid rumours of Chelsea and Tottenham taking an interest in him.

“It’s not really a surprise,” Silva told reporters ahead of Sunday’s clash with West Ham.

“He’s had a fantastic impact at our club and on the Premier League. It’s a normal situation that everyone’s starting to talk about him, but most important is that he keeps going, to improve.

“He’s a player with a lot of quality so it’s normal if everybody starts to pay attention to him.

“He’s a different type to the normal Brazilian player; for what we wanted for our team he’s the player with the [right] skills.

“We are talking about a fantastic talent, a very, very good player. I’m sure in the future he’ll achieve everything he can.”
