While most leagues are still trying to work out what to do when it comes to finishing their season or not, the Jupiler Pro League said enough was enough and called it a day, naming Club Brugge champions.
Managed by Philippe Clément, the Belgian side held a 15 point lead over second placed Gent, having lost just one game all season, and won 21 from a possible 29.
The team’s form in their championship, as well as in the Champions and Europa Leagues, didn’t go unnoticed by other clubs either, and Watford have started to take an interest in one of the club’s stars: Krépin Diatta.
It’s no surprise either, as the 21-year-old was a regular feature at Club Brugge this season, providing a threat from the left-wing, and scored eight goals in 34 appearances, as well as assisting another four.

These performances, according to Manu Lonjon, a journalist for Eurosport in France, attracted a number of clubs to come take a closer look, as he names both Watford and Hertha Berlin among those keen on the forward’s services.
There’s no more information than that, but with a history of plucking talent from Belgium in the past with varying degrees of success (Christian Kabasele, Sven Kums, Obbi Oulare or even Dodi Lukebakio), it isn’t surprising to see the Hornets return there once again if they feel there is a good deal to be made.
