Watford have set the wheels in motion for a summer move for Nigeria youth international Isaac Success, allnigeriasoccer.com reports.
The Hornets have started planning for life without their prolific frontman Odion Ighalo ahead of the start of next season and have beamed their searchlight on the highly-rated Granada starlet as his replacement.
Watford, Udinese and Granada are all owned by the Pozzo family and it is envisaged that negotiations over Success’s transfer to Vicarage Road will be fruitful.
That said, the ex-Golden Eaglets sensation has made his wishes known in advance, that he would move to the English Premier League club if his wages are increased and paid a hefty signing on fee.
For this season, Isaac Success is being paid €20-30,000 every month at Granada, more than double the sum he received during his first year in Andalusia.
It will be unnatural for Odion Ighalo to remain at Vicarage Road at the close of the 2016 summer transfer market, with the likes of Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal showing interest in his services.
The Super Eagles star has said that it doesn’t make sense joining an EPL side similar to Watford and will only join a top-four side.
