Chelsea are reportedly ready to join Tottenham in the race for Watford attacker Richarlison.

The Brazilian has been outstanding as the Hornets have made an impressive start to the new Premier League season.

Richarlison moved to Vicarage Road from Fluminense in the summer for a fee in the region of £13million and has taken to England’s top flight in thrilling fashion.

The 20-year-old has scored four goals in 12 appearances for Watford so far and that has made several of the Premier League’s biggest hitters to sit up and take notice.

According to The Sun on Sunday,  Chelsea chief Antonio Conte has joined the list of Richarlison’s admirers, although it would that Spurs are still at the front of the queue for the player’s signature.

Tottenham are said to be lining up Richarlison as a potential replacement for Dele Alli, who has been continually linked with a move away from the north London giants, while Chelsea could swap one Brazilian for another with Willian being strongly tipped to move on in 2018.
