Sporting winger Jovane Cabral is ‘coming to Watford’ from Portugal, according to reports.

Operating on both wings, as a centre forward and in an attacking midfield position, the 22-year-old finished the 2020/21 campaign with eight goals and five assists across all competitions.

The Cape Verde attacker’s performances have convinced the Hornets to make an approach for him this summer.

TuttoMercatoWeb have provided a short update on the player, and their title indicates Cabral is ‘near’ to sealing a switch to Vicarage Road.

Within the report, it’s explained the newly promoted Premier League side are ‘very close to defining the purchase’ of the Sporting player.
