Throughout this summer we’ve brought you various updates on the future of Watford youngster Cucho Hernandez.

The 20-year-old spent the past two seasons at Huesca where he scored 20 goals in 70 games and earned plenty of plaudits.

He’s set to spend next season on loan once again and there are several suitors for him in La Liga, with Real Betis particularly keen.

Earlier this month Estadio Deportivo claimed he was equally keen to head to the Benito Villamarín as, out of all of his offers, that’s the one that ‘most thrills’ him.

There’s been no mention of the transfer progressing since then and Estadio Deportivo explain why that’s the case.

According to the newspaper, Betis coach Rubi approved the transfer, having worked with Hernandez at Huesca in 2017/18 and Betis were happy to push for a move. Watford, though, are making things complicated.

The Hornets have ‘high expectations’ over a transfer and will only contemplate a sale if they are getting a big price to make it happen. They’ll also consider another loan but in that case, they’re refusing to put a purchase option into the deal.

It seems neither of those situations suit Betis and until Watford loosen their demands in either regard a transfer seems unlikely.
