Richarlison

Arsenal and Chelsea had earlier shown interest in Watford striker Richarlison during the winter transfer window but none was able to snatch him from the Hornets’ radar.

According to speculations both clubs are willing to reignite their desires to lure him to their respective clubs ahead of next transfer window  despite his dwindling form.

The Brazilian youngster was in bright form in the early part of the campaign where he scored five goals and five assists in just 14 Premier League matches, but he is currently in one of the poor forms of his career.

The player has failed to find the back of the net in more than four months, though the club’s collective performance not helping the player’s individual display as they have struggled throughout the campaign.

Considering his recent form, one would have thought Arsenal and Chelsea would pull out of his chase but that seems not to be  happening as the Sun reports that the striker is getting more suitors who are willing to compete for his service ahead of next season.

Paris St-German and Monaco are believed to have joined the chase to sign the £40m-rated striker as both clubs hope to improve their striking force before the commencement of the 2018-19 season.

Having sold out Mbappe to PSG last summer, Ligue 1 Champions Monaco, are set to sign the Brazilian as a replacement for the Frenchman. With this report, there could be a four-team competition for his services when the summer transfer begins.
