Landing deal for £12.6m-rated attacker would help Watford push for Europe

Watford fans here at the Transfer Tavern are thrilled to be seeing their team extend their stay in the Premier League with the Hornets firmly mid-table. Despite controversially parting ways with Marco Silva half-way through the season, Watford have remained as good a team under new boss Javi Gracia.  

One player who has been instrumental to their current good form is loanee Gerard Deulofeu, who is rated at £12.60 million on Transfermarkt. The 23-year-old is on loan from Barcelona and ever since his January arrival has proved a handful for opposing Premier League teams. Winger Deulofeu is blessed with obvious talent, it’s no wonder why he still technically remains a Barcelona player. The Spaniard is very tricky and also has a considerable amount of pace that has proven to be immensely difficult to defend against. On his debut against Chelsea, he scored one and assist one on their way to a 4-1 victory over the Blues and that game alone should be enough to make Watford consider making his move a permanent one.

His arrogance to want the ball is incredible, all he wants to do is drive forward with the ball to create chances for his team-mates. In the four games he has played in for Watford since joining on loan, the Hornets have won three of those and that is by no means a coincidence. Deulofeu makes the team look a lot better and more direct to now form a threatening team to play against.

Whether Watford could secure a deal with Barca to keep him permanently is another issue but the Hornets should ensure they do all they can to secure a top talent now and for the future.
