Latest Watford news: Hornets keen on Southampton man, striker linked with European move + more

Watford have made a subdued start to this summer’s transfer window under new manager Rob Edwards.

But Edwards isn’t fazed by Watford’s inactivity in the summer transfer window so far. He’s spoken positively about the club’s fortunes ahead of the 2022/23 season, which will be Edwards’ first Championship campaign as a manager.

The Hornets though will be entering the new season without Philip Zinckernagel.

Watford confirmed at the end of last week that the Dane has sealed a permanent move to Greek side Olympiacos, after his impressive stint on loan with Nottingham Forest last time round.

Elsewhere, it’s been claimed this morning that Portuguese duo Benfica and Porto are keen on Watford striker Joao Pedro.

TEAMtalk reckon that the pair are keen on signing Pedro, who’s under contract at Vicarage Road until 2027.

And in terms of potential new signings, Watford have been linked with a few recently, one of them being Keane Lewis-Potter.

The Hull City and England U21 international shone in the Championship last season, becoming a target for a number of several Premier League teams in the process.

But it was revealed at the end of last week that the Hornets tabled an ambitious bid to sign the attacker, which was rejected by their Championship rivals Hull City.

Meanwhile, a report from The Sun has revealed that Watford are keen on Southampton’s Adam Armstrong.

The ex-Blackburn Rovers man struggled to make an impact last season following his big-money move from Ewood Park, and he could now be sent out on loan ahead of the 2022/23 campaign.

Lastly, the Hornets have been liked with Swansea City striker Joel Piroe.

But a report from Swansea Independent says that Watford value Piroe at around £8million, which they say won’t be enough to tempt the Swans into selling this summer.

We could yet see some exciting new faces arrive at Watford this summer then. For now though, everything seems to be moving quite slowly as Edwards gets to grips with his new side.
