Richarlison set for Brazil call

Watford winger Richarlison is reportedly being lined up for a call-up to the Brazil squad.

Richarlison joined Watford in the summer transfer window from Fluminense for £11.2million and he has made a fantastic start to life in the Premier League, scoring three goals from seven league appearances.

The 20-year-old is quickly becoming one of the stars of the English top flight and he will be hoping to continue his impressive form when the Hornets welcome Arsenal to Vicarage Road on Saturday.

Reports are now suggesting the Brazilian has attracted the attention of Selecao manager Tite and it is claimed the winger will be included in the squad for the next international break.

Brazil breezed through qualifying for the 2018 World Cup in Russia but, despite this, the 56-year-old tactician is still keen to provide opportunities for players to force their way into his plans.

Richarlison is said to be on the verge of a call-up and the friendly against England at Wembley on November 14 could be his first senior cap, having represented the Under-20's 10 times.
