Watford have been dealt a big blow this week as questions over Richarlison’s future have been raised after Sky Sports named the clubs that are tracking him.
The Brazilian joined Watford in the summer and turned out to be a very unexpected star at Vicarage Road.
He was unable to stop scoring for a number of months early on in the season but he has not scored since November and is in a bad run of form.
Though, that has not stopped clubs from monitoring his progress ahead of a potential move this summer.
With that in mind, there could be a whole host of clubs looking to sign him.

Bidding war incoming
Sky Sports have claimed that ‘Manchester United, Chelsea and Everton are keeping tabs on Watford striker Richarlison.’
At 20-years-old, there is still a lot of promise in the young Brazilian and that is enough to convince some of the big boys to at least monitor him.
Though, the same report claims that Watford are even growing concerned about the players form and the fact he has played football for 12 months straight without a break.
The player joined Watford just as the Brazilian league finished at the Premier League started.
Sky Sports also claim that the player would not be sold for anything less that £40million if Watford were to sell.
That comes just 12 months after the player was signed for £11.2million.
Only time will tell if the big boys come calling or they leave it for another year.
There’s no way any team could justify paying £40m for Richarlison. Luckily, Everton and Chelsea are apparently interested.

If we sell Martial and replace him with Richarlison it will be the equivalent of losing Sir Alex and replacing him with Moyes
