Find out a little bit more about the Hornets' latest signing, Brazilian forward Richarlison

Richarlison | Factfile 


•    Richarlison de Andrade was born in Nova Venicia, 10 hours north of Rio De Janiero, Brazil, on May 10, 1997.

•    His career started in the youth systems of minnows Real Noroste, before a move to America Minerio, where he made his first-team debut in July 2015. After scoring nine goals in 24 games for the club, he moved to Fluminense for a £2m fee.

•    The versatile front-man drew attention in Europe for his pace, skill and finishing in 67 appearances for Fluminense. The 20-year-old scored 19 goals in league and cup football.

•    Richarlison made his debut for the Brazil Under-20 side in September 2016. He has netted three goals in 10 games for Seleção, and stood out at the 2017 Under-20 South American Championship where he played eight out of nine matches.

•    There have been premature comparisons to some Brazilian greats back in his home country, but Richarlison doesn’t take these too seriously. “I think it's cool, it's gratifying. But I do not want to be 'new Ronaldo' or 'new Romário', no. I want to be called Richarlison [laughs] and make my own story,” he told Globo Esporte in March. 

•    The Brazilian had also been linked with Chelsea, Manchester United, AC Milan and Ajax before joining the Hornets.
