Richarlison Attracting Interest From Chinese Super League Clubs

One of the brightest young players in the English Premier League this season has been Richarlison, a Brazilian winger who currently plays for Watford and that has emerged as a huge attacking weapon for the side.

The former Fluminense forward has been one of the big reasons why Watford have climbed to the eighth place in the standings, and has dazzled on the left wing playing opposite to Andre Carrillo. His play has not gone unnoticed, however, and several top clubs around Europe are already mulling a potential move for the 20-year-old.

Europe is not the only continent knocking on Richarlison’s door, though. According to a report from the Watford Observer, several unnamed teams in the Chinese Super League have already enquired Watford about the youngster’s availability. There’s no question Richarlison would automatically become a star in a lower competition such as the CSL.

However, Watford are not keen to part ways with their star forward – and especially not during the current season since Watford could have a realistic chance of playing in Europe if they can keep their current form. It’s quite likely that Richarlison will play elsewhere sooner than later, but he won’t be taking his talents to Asia any time soon.

Richarlison already has five goals during the current term.
