Players from sides that normally aren’t fan favorites and giants in the European game are naturally shrugged as a consequence. A rare exception to this, obviously, is when talented individuals put up performances worthy of noticing.

In the bigger context, being noticed can also translate to being wanted, and a transfer might just loom around the corner for the players that found themselves lucky enough to have attracted the right type of attention.

Now, one Watford player, in particular, might just have got his luck sorted if reports of Premier League giants seeking him out are true.

As per Sky Sports, Man Utd, Tottenham, and Everton are all monitoring the situation of Watford’s young striker, Richarlison.

The Brazilian was signed by the club last season from Fluminense, and showed a promising start to life in England with five goals coming out of his first 12 games alone. This sort of performance had led many clubs to believe he was a rising star of greater potential.

However, that seems to have diminished quite a bit, with the 20-year-old having failed to find a goal since November of 2017, and his total appearances this season having notched up to a troublesome 36.

This has led the source to claim that Watford are worried about the situation of the starlet, and about the fact that he has been playing constant football without a break for 12 months now, due to his Brazilian stint being followed up by a quick English transfer.

As a result, the fatigue might be catching up to him, and the side may begin to entertain an offer if it comes along from any of these clubs.

Although, they won’t be pleasant sellers, as the source adds that they would only consider an offer of £40 million or so due to the termination of his existing five-year-deal.

To add to the fray is the fact that Chelsea reportedly sought to sign the player at the same time Watford did, but the prospects of first-team football swayed his mind – something these clubs shouldn’t forget.
