WATFORD LINKED WITH MOVE FOR OLYMPIC BOUND NIGERIAN MIDFIELDER

Watford home to Isacc Success and Odion Ighalo are reportedly set to sanction a move for another Nigerian according to reports sourced by Owngoalnigeria.com.

Wilfred Ndidi of Genk whose teammate Christian Kabasele was priced away by the English side few days ago could join his ex club teammate and Nigerian counterparts at Vicarage Road according to Het Laatse Nieuws.

However same report claim Genk could ask for more than the reported 10 million Euros Watford paid for Kabasele few days ago as the Nigerian is highly priced and valued by the Belgium Europa League campaigners.

Genk reportedly turned down an offer of six million Euros from German Bundesliga side Hamburg in the winter transfer window and moved sharply to tie the 19 year old Nigerian on a new deal set to run till the summer of 2020.

The veteran of two U-20 World Cups made 38 appearances for Genk scoring four goals including a 35 yard screamer in their shock 4-2 win over Club Brugge which was voted as goal of the season in Belgium.

Ndidi a sure bet to represent Nigeria at the upcoming Olympics in Rio has experienced a remarkable rise in his form since he was switched from central defence to defensive midfield and already has three senior caps to his name for Nigeria.
