According to a report from the Daily Mirror, Tottenham are eyeing up a move for Watford forward Richarlison just a few months after his £11.2 million switch to Vicarage Road.

Richarlison has made an extremely bright start to life in the Premier League, scoring four times and contributing two assists in the top flight to help the Hornets make a wonderful start to the campaign.

It is not clear how much Watford may want for the forward, but you would imagine that he would cost Tottenham a significantly greater amount than the eight-figure fee he cost just a few months ago.

But if his form is a sign of things to come - and considering that he is only 20, it appears more than likely that he could get significantly better over the coming years - Spurs would be forgiven for thinking that whatever they end up paying if they do pursue a move could prove to look a bargain in the future.
