Watford Winger Hopes to Meet Pop Singer

Written by Chief Editor.

 Richarlison has only been in the Premier League for a mere few weeks, but he’s already become something of a cult hero to a number of fans. And he’s hoping one Hornets devotee in particular can fulfil one of his dreams by writing a hit song about his exploits on the pitch.

The  20-year-old arrived at Watford last month from Brazilian club Fluminense for a fee of around £11 million, and it wasn’t too long before he was making his presence felt in English football.

Given the No.11 jersey, Richarlison scored the winning goal against Bournemouth on his debut. After revealing himself to be an admirer of Watford’s honorary president Elton John, he’s hoping he might feature on the rockerr's next album.

 
He told Goal.com: ''I hope to get to know him very soon, I still haven’t had the honour. I want to give him a hug.

Gomes {goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes} says that Elton John always goes to games, that he likes to watch the players. He has a lot of love for the club, right?

“He is a musician and has a lot of love for Watford, so it’s okay to dream about a special song in my honour. It would be interesting, who knows!”
