Watford star Richarlison has refused to rule out a future move to Chelsea.

The Brazilian forward, 20, was linked with the Blues prior to his move to Watford last summer, when he signed a five-year contract at Vicarage Road.

And he has continued to be linked with a move to Stamford Bridge – Chelsea were tipped to move for him during last month’s transfer window and there are reports they are considering making a move this summer.

Asked about the apparent possibility of joining Chelsea, Richarlison told the Evening Standard: “In the future you never know but I leave all things like that up to my agents.

“At the moment my head is completely in Watford. I am not thinking about anything else and I want to help the team get as far as possible in the League. That is my objective, that is my focus and nothing else.”

Arsenal and Tottenham are also reported to be interested in Richarlison, who has impressed since his arrival in the Premier League.

“I want to play in this country for as long as possible,” he added.

“It is a great League and has been a great experience for me. I want to improve and playing in England can help me do that.”
