Chelsea have been installed as favorites to sign Arsenal target Richarlison by the bookies.

Richarlison has had a bright start to life in the Premier League after joining Watford for around £11m last summer.

The ease with which the former Fluminese man has taken to the Premier League is unsurprisingly attracting lots of interest from the Premier League big boys.

Following the loss of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in the last window and the expected departure of Alexis Sanchez in one of the next two windows, Wenger is understood to be monitoring a few top talents around Europe capable of injecting some much needed quality on the flanks.

It then makes it difficult for Arsenal not to be linked with these kind of talents, especially players like Richarlison who has been compared to the outstanding Cristiano Ronaldo.

According to Daily Star , the top four clubs interested in the Brazilian are Everton, Chelsea, Tottenham and Arsenal.

However bookmakers Ladbrokes say London rivals Chelsea are the ones leading the race to sign the winger.

The Blues are placed at an odd of 13/10, while Tottenham follow closely at 2/1. Arsenal have only been given an outside chance, along with Everton to sign the Brazilian.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Richarlison has been the bees knees for the Hornets this season, but with four top sides swarming around the Brazilian star, the buzz could soon go out on Watford’s campaign.”

The speedster was impressive against the Gunners at Vickerage Road earlier in the campaign, he won the penalty that initiated Watford’s come from behind victory against the Gunners. Much like Richarlison, Wenger should endeavor he also comes from behind to win the race for the player’s signature.
