Watford midfielder Richarlison has made a blistering start to life in the Premier League, and is courting the attention of some unnamed Chinese Super League clubs.

The 20-year-old has been a shining light for the impressive Hornets under Marco Silva, scoring five goals and registering four assists for teammates in 12 games - his most recent strike coming on Sunday against West Ham in another fine performance.

Richarlison was labelled one of the best young talents in Brazil at the time of his move to Vicarage Road, and he has certainly lived up to his billing.

As reported by the Watford Observor, there is now interest in his burgeoning talent from the Far East.

A move for the 20-year-old would be an unlikely outcome, given the Brazilian has only just joined the Hornets. However, club owner Gino Pozzo may have to stand firm against big money offers in the January window.

There is also interest in Richarlison a little closer to home in the form of Tottenham, who are eyeing a replacement for long term injury victim Erik Lamela and the inconsistent Moussa Sissoko.

Mauricio Pochettino is a well-known advocate for youth in football, and would arguably be a great mentor for Richarlison. However, the starlet will undoubtedly be advised to keep his feet on the ground and try to build on his good early form for the rest of the season.
