Richarlison has teamed up again with Marco Silva, the manager who initially brought him to England with Watford 12 months ago after seeing the attacker establish himself as one of Brazil’s brightest young talents with powerhouse Rio de Janeiro club Fluminense.

Richarlison swiftly acclimatised to Premier League football, scoring on his full debut for the Hornets in a 2-0 victory at Bournemouth and winning rave reviews for a sequence of assertive and vibrant performances.

The versatile 21-year-old struck five times in his first 11 top-flight starts and contributed three assists during the same period, propelling Watford to within three points of the Champions League spots.

A direct attacker, he let fly with 95 shots in the Premier League last term, fewer only than the trio of Harry Kane, Mohamed Salah and Christian Eriksen. Comfortable in any position across the frontline, Richarlison scored twice with his left foot, twice with his right and once with his head, as well as making five assists.

Richarlison has been capped 10 times by his country’s Under-20 team and scored on his international debut against England at St George’s Park in September 2016.

He was one of the stars of the following year’s Under-20 South American championship, finding the net twice in the tournament in Ecuador to further swell his burgeoning reputation.

Richarlison launched his professional career with America Mineiro as an 18-year-old in 2015 and hit the ground running.

The forward scored 10 minutes after coming off the bench on his first appearance for the Belo Horizonte side and, operating primarily as a central striker, hit another eight goals to help his team win promotion into Brazil’s top-flight.

He was signed by four-times national champions Fluminense in December 2015 and on his league debut away to former team America Mineiro created the only goal of the game for former Brazil striker Fred.

Richarlison’s speed, skill and physicality ensured he quickly became one of Fluminese’s most influential figures and led manager Abel Braga to describe him as “a complete player”.

Richarlison was raised in the Brazilian municipality of Nova Venecia and left his homeland after scoring 19 goals in 67 matches for Fluminense.

Making his debut against newly-promoted Wolves, the young winger scored twice to help the Toffees to a 2-2 draw at Molineux.
