Arsenal and Chelsea are both chasing Watford forward Richarlison as they prepare to launch an audacious summer swoop.

Arsene Wenger and Antonio Conte are looking to add the Brazilian to their ranks and have approached the player’s agent over a future transfer, according to reports.

Richarlison started off the 2017-18 in exceptional form, only to find things tougher of late, failing to score since November.

Through his first 12 games in the Premier League, Richarlison found the back of the net five times, as well as notching a hatful of assists.

However, the Watford forward has now gone 12 games without a goal in all competitions, last scoring in the 2-0 win over West Ham on November 19.

Richarlison himself admitted he is finding life in England harder now after a red-hot start.

He claimed: “Teams are already marking me individually, they are putting two players there on my side.

“Unfortunately it’s difficult, but I’m doing what I can.

“I’m facing them, I’m making assists, I’m trying to score my goals. I’ll keep working to keep bringing the results.”
