Watford have secured the signing of forward Richarlison from Fluminense on a five-year contract.
The Brazil Under-20 international had been linked with both Manchester United and Chelsea but arrives at Vicarage Road for a reported £11.2million fee.
Richarlison is the latest in a string of new recruits, with Will Hughes, Nathaniel Chalobah and Tom Cleverley having already signed up under new Watford boss Marco Silva.
The 20-year-old scored 19 goals in 67 appearances for his former club.
