Arsenal & Chelsea open talks with Richarlison’s agent Renato Velasco

Watford & Richarlison

Could Richarlison already be heading out the Watford exit door?

Until recently many were arguing that Richarlison was the signing of the summer for Watford.

Indeed, the 20-year-old Brazilian has settled into life in the Premier League far quicker and better than most. He’s scored five goals and added six assists already this season.

However, while Richarlison has slowed down a little in recent weeks, it’s now being reported that Arsenal and Chelsea are chasing his signature.

Arsenal & Chelsea open talks

On Sunday, Yahoo Brazil are reporting that Arsenal and Chelsea have already approached Watford and Richarlison’s agent Renato Velasco to enquire about a potential summer deal.

Aside from that nugget, the article was extremely light on details. It’s unclear, for example, how much Arsenal or Chelsea would offer Watford for their South American.

Either way Watford seem to be in a strong position to resist any deal.

Watford complete the signing of Richarlison from Fluminense for a fee of around £11.5 million. The youngster agreed to stay at Vicarage Road until 2022.

It would seemingly take a big offer to convince Watford to sell anytime soon.

Watford 2 – Southampton 2

The points were shared at Vicarage Road on Saturday as Southampton were held to a 2-2 draw at Watford.

Southampton were left the match raging after they took a 2-0 lead away against the Hornets.

Prior to Saturday, Saints midfielder James Ward-Prowse hadn’t scored all season in the Premier League.

He broke he duck for the season with a well-placed shot in the first half. And Ward-Prowse put Southampton 2-up at the break as he scored his second of the season.

But Watford hit back in the second half. Marco Silva’s side got a foothold in the match when Andre Gray found the target.

In the 90th minute Watford levelled when Abdoulaye Doucoure scored a dramatic second with his hand.
