Richarlison has sparked speculation over his future at Watford after posting a cryptic message on his Twitter account.
The Brazilian has been in sparkling form since moving to the Hornets in the summer, so much so that Chelsea are weighing up bringing him to Stamford Bridge at the end of the season.
He arrived at Vicarage Road in part thanks to manager Marco Silva, yet the shockwaves of the Portuguese’s exit from the club as he was sacked on Sunday, may lead for him to push for a move.

In the aftermath of Silva’s sacking, the 20-year-old published a tweet that simply showed an angry emoji.
Watford have already made clear that Richarlison is unavailable for transfer in January, though Chelsea have already discussed a potential summer deal with agent Giuliano Bertolucci.
However, the Hornets have already shown that they are perfectly capable of playing hardball when it comes to the futures of their key figures.
They rejected an approach from Everton for Silva – an action that they claimed had an unsettling influence on their manager, pre-empting the difficult run of form that they have not been able to lift themselves from.
With five goals and five assists in 24 Premier League matches, Richarlison has widely been considered their star performer this term.
