Spending most of last season behind the likes of Radamel Falcao and Kylian Mbappé, Monaco’s Guido Carrillo is enjoying a bit more football this time around, scoring two goals in 10 appearances so far.
Over the summer, the Argentinian target man was allegedly on Watford’s radar, as Marco Silva looked to bolster the Hornets’ attack, with TuttoMercatoWeb claiming the Premier League side had seen a bid turned down by the principality club.
Monaco were said to want around €12m for their backup striker, a figure the English club never met, but there’s every chance that price will be lower in January.
Téléfoot claim the Ligue 1 club will be looking to get rid of some deadweight in January, which is likely to include Guido Carrillo.
The only way this would happen would be if clubs made an ‘interesting’ offer, which the Hornets, with their money, could easily do.
With rumours sending Islam Slimani to Vicarage Road, Guido Carrillo could certainly be a very interesting alternative if the Algerian proves too expensive.
