Chelsea have joined the clubs chasing Watford forward Richarlison, according to the Sun.

The Brazilian international has been starring for the Hornets this season after turning down the Blues and other top clubs in order to make the £11.2m move to Vicarage Road in August.

Richarlison again impressed in the 2-0 victory over West Ham yesterday, scoring the second to seal the win, and helping Marco Silva’s side climb to eighth in the Premier League table.

The 20 year old is also said to have impressed manager Antonio Conte when he faced Chelsea at Stamford Bridge back in October, despite missing two clear cut opportunities in the match.

Richarlison has not needed any time to adapt to English football with four goals and three assists in his first 11 league games. The Blues are not the only team who are pursuing the Brazilian however, with Tottenham and Arsenal both also said to be monitoring the player’s progress.
