Watford are eyeing a move for Nantes striker Kolo Muani this summer but face competition from several European sides for his signature.

That’s according to Foot Mercato, who say the Hornets have a ‘very close eye’ on the Nantes forward, who has been a ‘revelation’ in France this season.

The Frenchman was moved into the Nantes first team in the summer after returning from a loan spell with third-tier US Boulogne last season.

His first campaign in the top flight has proven to be a successful one, too, with five goals and five assists in 30 games in the league this season.

This has apparently earned him interest outside of France, with Frankfurt, RB Leipzig and Club Brugge all eyeing up moves.

Watford are also keen and have a ‘very close’ eye on the striker, who could be available on the cheap as his contract expires next year.

He has still not managed to find an agreement with Nantes’ leaders for a possible extension, which is probably why there is interest in him.

Watford’s efforts are likely to be determined by their promotion push, with the Hornets currently second in the Championship with six games of the season remaining.

Either way, it seems they are keen, although the competition could be fierce if Muani continues to impress in the coming months.
