Arsenal Plot A Bid For In-Demand 20 Y/O Watford Starlet: Where Will He Fit In?

If you perform in the big stages pretty soon every elite club will come around with a lucrative deal to hand out – the very depiction of Arsenal’s interest in Watford winger, Richarlison. The Brazilian has hit the ground running ever since his arrival to Vicarage Road in the summer of 2017.

He has been a regular starter for the Hornets this season with 25 appearances and 5 goals under his belt already under Marco Silva. The £11.5m transfer fee the Hertfordshire based club invested on the 20-year-old has paid dividends and it looks like they can triple their profits if a bid from Arsenal does come in before January end.

Richarlison is a product of the America Mineiro youth setup and earned himself a promotion to the senior side in June 2015. But it was Fluminense where he made his name grabbing 11 goals and 7 assists in 43 club appearances.

Richarlison’s impact for the ‘Orns has been significant as they are currently sitting in the 10th spot of the Premier League table. However, Arsenal, on the other hand, are facing a huge crisis over the future of Alexis Sanchez who was left out of the squad in the side’s 1-2 loss to Bournemouth on Saturday.

The Chilean is bound towards either of the Manchester clubs and Arsene Wenger is desperately scouring the market for a replacement. Sanchez’s talents cannot be replicated so easily and even if you splash in astronomical amounts, the Gunners will always be able to notice his absence from the squad.

Mesut Ozil and Jack Wilshere’s contract situation is also circulating around the stands at Emirates and a quality addition is highly necessary to keep the club’s seasonal ambitions alive. The entire transfer saga has caused a great deal of mental exhaustion not only on the manager but on the players as well.

They put up a lacklustre display at Dean Court and have now opened up an 8 point gap behind the top four. Making a comeback looks like a mountainous task and without world-class talents, you will most definitely fail to match strides with the elite.

Richarlison is a versatile forward who can appear from both the wings and has the skill to go past defenders at will. The U20 Brazil international does have high career ambitions and is one of the rare talents who has been able to adjust to the pace of the English game so fast. His talents will be welcomed at the North London side right after Sanchez’s future destination is revealed.
