Three Watford players Quique Flores could sign for Leeds United

Watford's Quique Flores has emerged as a candidate for the Leeds United job.

Watford confirmed earlier via their official website that they will part ways with manager Quique Flores, despite a successful season at the Hornets.

SkySports subsequently reporting that Flores is considering the chance to manage Championship side Leeds United, who his side beat in the FA Cup earlier this year.

Here is a look at three Watford players Flores could look to sign for Leeds...

Obbi Oulare

Watford beat competition from top European clubs to sign Obbi Oulare from Club Brugge last summer. The 20-year-old has two Champions League goals to his name already, but could not dislodge the excellent Troy Deeney and Odion Ighalo from the first team. He barely featured at all, and a loan spell is his best bet for regular football, and Flores could make the promising striker a key man at Leeds.

Steven Berghuis

Watford paid £3.5 million to sign Dutch international winger Steven Berghuis last summer, but could not establish himself in a competitive squad, making 11 appearances and providing two assists. Leeds lack quality wingers and Berghuis could flourish with regular football.

Heurelho Gomes

Marco Silvestri is a divisive figure in the Leeds goal, and Flores could seek to bring in experienced Brazilian goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes. Watford signed Costel Pantilimon mid-season, who could take Gomes' place, and the 35-year-old would not be averse to dropping down to the Championship, previously winning promotion with Watford.
