Chelsea favourites to sign £40m-rated South-American star wanted by Arsenal


Things are not going too well for the Blues this season right from the relationship between the boards and Antonio Conte, team’s poor defensive abilities to striker’s goalscoring problems which is largely responsible for their failure to finish among the top-four clubs this season.

In his bid to solve these problems, Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is set to show Antonio Conte the exit door by the end of the season so as to put an end to the unhealthy relationship between the boards and the manager.

In his bid to end the goalscoring crisis before the start of next season, the millionaire has been linked with a move for Brazilian youngster Richarlison who currently plays for Watford, despite the his recent poor form in front of goal. He is currently on a four-month goal drought, though his teammates haven’t been of help as they are collectively struggling to avoid being relegated to the Championship next season.

Getting Richarlison might be a difficult task as the Sun reports that Arsenal, Paris St-German and Monaco are reportedly in the race for the 20-year-old’s signature in the summer.

Having sold out Kylian Mbappe to PSG last summer, Ligue 1 Champions Monaco are hoping they could sign the Brazilian striker as the Frenchman’s replacement before the start of next season. He is reportedly said to cost nothing less than £40m due to the release clause in his contract with the Hornets.
