Chelsea join Arsenal in summer move for Watford ace

Chelsea and London rivals Arsenal are reportedly interested in making a summer move for Brazilian Richarlison, currently at Watford.

Both Antonio Conte and Arsene Wenger, the respective boss’ of either side have approached Richarlison’s agent regarding a summer switch to London.

Yahoo Brazil claim that the pair are looking to add the Brazilian to their squads, despite speculation around the security of both of their jobs.

Richarlison gave Chelsea a huge let off after missing a few golden opportunities.

The 20-year-old joined the Hornets in the summer and took the Premier League by storm, scoring five in his first 12 appearances for the club, making his move at £11.2m look a bargain.

Although he hasn’t scored since the middle of November, Richarlison is a hot prospect and is rated highly.

But Chelsea already have Charly Musonda, Willian and Pedro at the club behind Eden Hazard, so if the 20-year-old were to join, he certainly wouldn’t be at the top of the pecking list.
