Tottenham fans have taken to Twitter to urge the club to sign Watford attacker Richarlison after his stunning performance against West Ham on Sunday.
Richarlison, 20, scored as Marco Silva’s side eased to a 2-0 victory against the Hammers, capping what has been a stunning start to the season for the young Brazilian.
The Mirror has previously reported that Spurs are already keeping close tabs on the in-form Vicarage Road ace having sent scouts on multiple trips to watch over his progress.
Silva also admitted in his pre-match press conference this week that he isn’t surprised teams are keeping track of Richarlison, who arrived at Watford for £11.2million from Fluminense in the summer transfer window.
Although he has only been in the Premier League for a matter of months, Spurs fans are now hoping that chairman Daniel Levy can broker a deal for Richarlison in January.
Here is a selection of their tweets:

Richarlison was in fine form for Watford in David Moyes’ first game as West Ham manager, helping the Hornets rise up to eighth in the Premier League standings.
The Brazilian scored his fifth goal of the season across all competitions when he beat Joe Hart in the second half, his second in his last two matches.
