Richarlison claims he is happy with the Hornets

Richarlison refuses to rule out move away from Watford

Despite a stunning debut season with Watford, Richarlison is eyeing a summer move to Chelsea, report the Metro.

However, the 20-year-old, who has scored five goals and provided four assists in 26 league starts, insisted that he is very happy with the Hornets and is fully focused on life at Vicarage Road.

"In the future, you never know but I leave all things like that up to my agents," the forward said.

"At the moment my head is completely in Watford. I want to play in this country for as long as possible," he added.

There have also been reports that Watford are set to hand Richarlison a new contract in a bid to fend off interest from Chelsea.

There have been numerous reports that a £50m deal was tabled by Chelsea for Juventus' Alex Sandro, whom the Blues targeted last summer as well, but failed to agree a deal.

Until last month, Antonio Conte was set to beat Jose Mourinho in the race to sign the full-back but the Metro has reported that the 26-year-old is not ready to leave the Serie A champions.

"I have always remained focused on my work and my only thought has always been Juventus, with whom I still have two years of the contract", Sandro said.

"I feel really good and I am satisfied with my condition today and my goal is, first of all, to win everything with Juventus. Then the World Cup will come and I hope to deserve a call in the Seleçao by doing well here", he added.

Sandro, who has scored a goal and provided five assists in 19 appearances in all competitions this term, is contracted to the Old Lady until the summer of 2020.


Eden Hazard hints 'anything can happen' amid fresh Real Madrid talks

Chelsea v West Bromwich Albion - Premier League
Eden Hazard has been one of Real Madrid's top targets for years

Eden Hazard has consistently been linked with a move to Real Madrid for quite some time now and the Mirror has reported that the Belgian is ready to make a summer move if Chelsea’s season ends in disappointment.

The 27-year-old is yet to sign a new deal at Stamford Bridge, which will make him the highest paid player in the Premier League.

There have been reports in the Daily Star that Los Blancos are willing to smash the British transfer record to sign Hazard, who saw off the challenge of former Chelsea players Kevin De Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku to be named the Belgian FA's "Devil of the Year."

The La Liga club are preparing to offer a record £100m and Gareth Bale for Chelsea's best player.

"I still have two years left on my contract. I feel very good over here. The fans love me, my family enjoys life over here. We will see," Hazard said.

"In football, anything can happen. But in football, nothing can happen too. Every year they talk about Real or PSG. And when I want to change clubs, I will. But at the moment I’m good where I am", he added.
