Yuto Nagatomo might have already played his final game for Inter Milan.
The versatile left-back has been at the San Siro since 2010, getting his big break following some impressive performances for Japan at the World Cup in South Africa, but seems very unlikely to stay beyond this summer.
Nagatomo joined Turkish side Galatasaray on loan during the final hours of the January transfer window, so it seems almost certain that the 31-year-old will never be seen in Inter colours again.
However, where he will be playing next season remains to be seen. Restricted by Financial Fair Play, Inter are desperate to get rid of some of their fringe players to raise funds for new additions and Nagatomo, who had started just nine Serie A games for Luciano Spalletti, looks certain to be sacrificed.
West Ham have done business with Inter very recently, the same publication breaking the news of their loan deal to bring in Joao Mario for the rest of this season.
And Nagatomo would add experience and a winning mentality at the London Stadium, while offering David Moyes plenty of tactical options on the wings.
Watford, meanwhile, have both Jose Holebas and Marvin Zeegelaar to pick from so it will be interesting to see how Nagatamo would fit into Javi Gracia’s plans.
