Watford could try and pull off a surprise transfer swoop for experienced marksman Emanuele Calaiò, who looked set to sign for Catania.
The 32-year-old is becoming something of a journeyman but he has found the net regularly throughout his career in Italy.
Although Calaiò remains owned by Napoli, he spent last season on loan to Genoa and appears unlikely to break into Rafa Benitez's team.
Genoa have first refusal to sign Calaiò permanently and will have talks with Napoli in the next few days, but they aren't expected to do so.
Newly relegated Catania are said to want the Sicilian striker to spearhead their attempt to get back into Serie A, but Watford may jump in.
In his 15 year career as a professional, Calaiò has never played abroad and it's not clear whether he would enjoy the challenge or prefer to stay in his homeland.
Calaiò's future will be decided within the next three weeks and if Genoa decide not to keep him on within the next few days then Catania and Watford could immediately be in a race to snap him up.
