After he arrived at Watford from Anderlecht in January 2018, the English club allowed Dodi Lukebakio to join Fortuna Düsseldorf on a season-long loan deal.
The forward has scored 12 goals and registered three assists in all competitions this campaign.
Kicker takes a look at the Belgian’s future beyond this season and despite having a contract until 2022, it’s claimed that Lukebakio ‘does not want’ to remain with Watford.
However, the lure of playing in the Premier League or the Bundesliga attracts him and Fortuna Dusseldorf manager Friedhelm Funkel had earlier expressed his desire to retain the Belgian beyond his loan spell.
On March 6th, we covered a report from Sport Bild, who explained that Fortuna held a ‘secret meeting’ with the Hornets to discuss the possibility of signing the 21-year-old.
A few days later, another German outlet Sport1 claimed the attacker is not included in Javi Gracia’s plans at Vicarage Road and his market price of €10m was deemed too high by Fortuna.
With Lukebakio having no plans to stay at Watford and if Fortuna fail to find an agreement with the player’s employer for transfer, the winger may have to find another club in the summer.
