Two days ago, Le10 Sport in France reported that Kenny Lala of Strasbourg has made it to Manchester City manager Pep Gaurdiola’s summer transfer plans.
Calciomercato.it now claims that amid interest from Lazio in signing the right-back in January, his future is more likely to be in the Premier League.
Though a move to the Etihad has been discussed, the Italian website claims the defender is of ‘interest’ to Watford.
It is claimed the Hornets’ owners, the Pozzo family, are ready to meet Strasbourg’s demands to secure the fullback’s services.
The report explains the French side are looking for a fee in the region of €8-12m for Lala and the quoted price range should not be an issue for Javi Gracia’s side.
The 27-year-old has been one of the standout players for the Ligue 1 club this season and apart from contributing in defending, he’s added more value while going forward as well.
Lala has scored five goals and registered nine assists in 31 league games. Watford’s interest certainly seems justified.
