Marco Silva says it is “normal” for Premier League clubs to be circling Richarlison after the Brazilian’s impressive start at Watford.
Richarlison, 20, has scored four goals in 12 appearances to help steer Silva’s Watford into the top half of the table, and has attracted the interest of Spurs in the process, according to the Evening Standard.
Richarlison only arrived from Fluminense last summer for £13m, but Silva insists he expected clubs to be tracking the youngster after such a promising start.
“It’s not a surprise if these clubs come to see him,” said Silva. “It’s not really a surprise. He’s had a fantastic impact at our club and on the Premier League. It’s a normal situation that everyone’s starting to talk about him, but most important is that he keeps going, to improve.
“He’s a player with a lot of quality so it’s normal if everybody starts to pay attention to him.”
