Manchester City

Watford should jump ahead of Leicester and seal a summer deal for this striker

Our resident Watford fans are delighted with new boss Marco Silva’s appointment this summer.

The Portuguese manager was superb in his brief stint at Hull City last season, despite being unable to rescue the club to safety.

Silva has already recruited several young talent for the ‘Orns to get excited about this summer.

With both Will Hughes and Nathaniel Chalobah joining the set up, the youthful exuberance in the middle could be the energy needed to get Vicarage Road rocking next season.

One area of the field the fans are still desperate to see improve is up front.

Troy Deeney had another respectable campaign last season, but the Englishman needs assistance.

Manchester City appear to be ready to offload Kelechi Iheanacho this summer.

The 20-year-old impressed whenever utilised by the Citizens, but has fallen down the pecking order at City ever the arrival of Gabriel Jesus.

Iheanacho, who scored four goals in five starts for City is desperate for first-team football and Watford’s serious lack of striking options means it’s a perfect pairing.

Silva is inheriting a team that simply did not score enough in the Premier League last season and should do all he can to lure the Nigerian to his new home.

The Hornets will have to see off interest from Leicester City, with the Foxes rumoured to be tracking the £25m-rated forward.

If Silva could somehow fend off the Foxes to sign the young striker, it would be one hell of a coup for Watford.

What are your thoughts? Would Iheanacho boost Watford’s goal tally? Let us know in the comments!
