Watford Football Club have finally finalized the signing of Fluminense striker Richarlison.

Speaking to BBC Sport, Fluminense president Pedro Abad confirmed the move was agreed at the end of last week. Abad said: “ Richarlison will not travel to face Recife this week. His departure to Watford is confirmed, he'll play in the Premier League. It was all done last week Friday.” However, Richarlison must now wait to discover whether he'll be given a work permit to play in the Premier League next season, otherwise, Watford Football Club will be forced to loan the Brazilian out for the campaign.

Coutinho not for sale, says Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp

With reports suggesting it is increasingly likely Neymar Jr is set to join PSG, while Barcelona will have a “hole to fill up,” and having identified Liverpool star Phillipe Coutinho as an ideal replacement another fresh offer can't be ruled out.

Earlier this summer Liverpool turned down a $94.5m bid for Coutinho but that does not appear to have “deterred” Barcelona, with increasing speculations Barca will return with an improved bid. However, Jurgen Klopp's stance remains irreversible, and he made his views known at a press conference before Tuesday's Audi Cup opening match against Bayern Munich in Germany. Klopp told reporters: “If you say he is not available to be sold out, where's the interpretation?

The word NOT means there's no interpretation. There's nothing new to talk about.

Phillipe Coutinho featured for Liverpool against Bayern Munich in Tuesday's Audi Cup match, which Liverpool won 3-0.

Leon Goretzka denies rumor linking him with Bayern Munich move

Manchester City, Liverpool and Arsenal are all said to be keen on Leon Goretzka, but according to, Bayern Munich have been most linked with a move after it was reported the 22-year-old Germany international had agreed to join them next summer.

That's when the German's deal with Schalke 04 expires and it was reported Goretzka would move to Bayern Munich on a free transfer then. But now, according to ESPN FC, the German youngster has “rubbished” such rumor and insisted he has not sorted-out his future at the moment. Goretzka told ESPN FC: “Honestly, it is actually getting on my nerves. I can see why it interests some people but I can only repeat it once, there is nothing new to report with Bayern.

I have openly denied there's currently no agreement in place with any club. I can assure you this is the case for now.”

Leon Goretzka is one of the hottest prospects around Europe and big European club sides are desperate to sign him up.
