Arsenal are interested in signing Watford attacker Richarlison, according to reports.
The Brazilian has settled quickly into Premier League life and is already being linked with a move away from Watford.
According to the Daily Star, Arsenal are about to join Tottenham in the “race” to sign him.
They report that Arsenal see him as a potential replacement for Alexis Sanchez and a cheaper option than Monaco’s Thomas Lemar.
However, given how much money that is floating around in the Premier League, their claim that Richarlison would only cost £25m seems very optimistic.
Richarlison has five goals in 12 Premier League games this season, having joined from Fluminese in the summer. He netted again against West Ham on Sunday.

The 20-year-old has been very impressive on the left flank for Marco Silva’s team.
His performances against Arsenal and Chelsea, in particular, got a lot of attention.
He was also accused of diving to win a penalty against Arsenal in a 2-1 win, while he missed two sitters in a 4-2 defeat at Chelsea.
Besides that, he has been performing well. If he keeps this form up, many other teams will become interested in signing him.
With Alexis Sanchez set to leave the club, Arsenal are about to be linked with just about any attacker who is right footed and plays on the left.
