Deal Close: Watford agree club record fee for midfielder

Sanchez FloresThe Watford fans are having a friendly game of pool in The Transfer Tavern and discussing reports that the club are set to smash their transfer record.

The Daily Mirror is reporting that the Premier League side have had a bid of around £8 million accepted for midfielder Abdoulaye Doucore.

If the deal is completed it will see the club’s transfer record smashed for the second time this month following the arrival of Nordin Amrabat from Malaga last month, for a then record fee of £6.1 million fee.

Doucore was close to a move to Vicarage Road during the summer but saw that move fail due to his wife being heavily pregnant but appears that Quique Sanchez Flores has kept tabs on the midfielder and is keen to make him his latest recruit of the transfer window.

The Watford fans in The Tavern are delighted with the news and believe it shows the club’s intent to become a steady placed Premier League side.

Watford fans, will Doucore be a star at Vicarage Road? Let us know in the comments below!
