Watford have enjoyed a strong start to the season, and if anything - it has gone too well.
Their star signing and manager are already being linked with exits, with the vultures circling.
Normally Watford would be confident of keeping a player they have signed just months earlier, but Everton may just be about to do Spurs a huge favour.
Everton are attempting to lure Watford boss Marco Silva to become their new manager as they seek to find a replacement for Ronald Koeman.
Silva leaving would be cruel on Watford, and it will also give new signing Richarlison reason not to stick around.
If his manager demonstrates that 'bigger clubs' are more attractive than Watford, then the in demand winger may follow suit.
Watford need to keep Silva to stand a chance of holding onto Richarlison,
Tottenham should be hoping that Everton are successful in their pursuit of Silva.
