Wednesday’s edition of L’Equipe reported Watford have ‘commissioned agents’ to find out the possibility of signing Adrien Tameze from Nice this month.

Cardiff City interest was also referenced, with the French newspaper saying they’d be prepared to pay €10m for the player.

France’s RMC have now backed up the Hornets claims, but haven’t done the same for Cardiff.

It’s stated, according to their own information, that Watford interest has been confirmed, as the club look to protect themselves against a possible exit of Abdoulaye Doucouré, who is repeatedly linked with PSG.

RMC say there are other clubs keen on the player, but don’t name them. It’s stated only a ‘very large offer’ from an English club would see a January transfer happen.

They don’t, however, say what would be considered a big enough bid.

Nice are trying to prolong the player’s contract and give him a pay rise. The 24 year old central midfielder is changing agents at the moment, but it’s thought once that is completed then a renewal can speed up.

RMC don’t sound especially hopeful for Watford, at least during this transfer window.
