If there’s ever a game Watford need to win on Sunday, it’s their away trip to Arsenal.
It’s a tough ask, and a victory may not be enough to secure them a spot in next year’s Premier League depending on what Aston Villa do, but they aren’t relegated just yet.
Other than their top flight status, many things are riding on Sunday’s fixture, including their plans for the summer transfer window.
That’s because there’s a good chance that if they stay up, they would get Juan Augustín Musso as their goalkeeper, according to Gazzetta dello Sport.
The Italian newspaper explain that the Argentine’s ‘hopes of Premier League football are in Watford’s hands’, as the €30m price tag set by the Pozzo family at Udinese has put off the likes of Inter and Milan.
That’s why Musso is ‘hoping that Watford can pull of a practically miraculous in the last 90 minutes’ so he can say goodbye to Serie A.
If he doesn’t, he’ll have to stay in Italy, which it seems he’d rather not do.
It’s not said if the owners would do some kind of discount deal between Udinese and Watford should the Hornets stay up, but even so, you know any transfer that sends players from one Pozzo club to the other will be far kinder than any other they sign off on.
