The White and Blacks are hoping to bolster their attacking options ahead of the new Serie A campaign, which starts this weekend
Udinese are set to sign forgotten Super Eagles star Isaac Success on a loan deal from Watford. The Serie A club are short in the attacking areas, having lost talisman Rodrigo De Paul to Atletico Madrid.
And with the Italian top-flight set to kick off this season, The Whites and Blacks are hoping to strengthen their attack by bringing in Success.
According to Football Italia, Udinese have asked Watford for Success’ services. A deal is imminent as both clubs are owned by the Pozzo family.
There was a similar deal involving another Nigerian international between the two parties last season. Super Eagles vice-captain William Troost-Ekong moved from the Serie A club to sign for Watford, who were in the Championship last campaign.
Success could now move the opposite way this summer. It’s also a move that benefits the former Granada man as he offers him an opportunity to get more minutes under his belt. At the same time, he is also familiar with the surroundings at Udinese, having played for the U-19 team before.
The 25-year-old has struggled for game time at Watford in the last two years. He played just over 300 minutes of football in the Skybet Championship last season, while he did not feature in the Premier League opener against Aston Villa last weekend.
However, a move to Italy could reignite his career. Success is a full Nigerian international with four caps, but he hasn’t played for the country since 2018.
