Four days ago, we carried a report from AS, who explained that Marc Navarro has ‘already made it clear’ to Watford that he wants a move away from the club in the summer transfer window.

Leganes have been credited with an interest in signing the right-back as they’ve been chasing his signing since Janaury.

On July 11th, the same newspaper stated the right-back’s transfer is ‘entirely in Watford’s hands’.

Another Spanish newspaper, Mundo Deportivo, claims there is ‘optimism’ at the Spanish club about the arrival of the 24-year-old, who made only one start in the league last season.

The defender is ‘close’ to becoming a new player of Leganes as the operation is well ‘on track’.

Mauricio Pellegrino’s side wants to close the agreement with the Hornets as soon as possible and only the ‘OK’ from the Premier League club is now missing for the deal to take shape.

Leganes will sign Navarro on a loan deal with a purchase option, but they will have yo wait until next week to complete the transfer.
