Report: Ghanaian star Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu linked to Premier League move, why is Watford most likely destination?

Forza Udinese

The Udinese player is said to be in talks with two PL teams.

This week has seen reports in Ghana link one of the Black Stars star players linked with a move to the Premier League.

Ghana Web reported a source as close to Udinese player Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu as stating:

“As I speak two EPL Clubs want him, they have been in touch and talks are still ongoing.

“I wouldn’t like to mention the names of the Clubs because we have not finalize any deal yet but I can confirm to you that two Club in England have expressed interest and we hope a deal with be reached very soon.”

Badu is only 25-years-old but already has 62 caps and 10 goals for the Ghanaian national team and has been a regular in the Udinese first-team since arriving at the club from Berekum Arsenal in 2010.

The report did not however mention either team linked with the powerful midfield operator.

That being said it would not be much of a leap to theorize that one of the teams interested in the player is likely to be Watford.

The Hornets are owned by the Pozzo family, who also own the Italian side Udinese.

In the past the likes of Odion Ighalo, Mathias Ranegie and Almen Abdi have all switched Udinese for Watford - and that is just a small sample of such players.

If a Udinese player is talking to Premier League clubs - it is almost inconceivable to believe that Watford would not be one of the teams in question.

Watford are currently flying high in the Premier League but will not want to stand still this window whilst teams around them improve and Badu would be a good addition to their current crop.
