Watford are expected to see a few of their players leave Vicarage Road this summer after they were relegated from the Premier League.
Gerard Deulofeu is among them and he’s drawing attention from clubs in Italy and Spain, despite suffering a serious knee injury earlier this year.
On August 5th, Corriere dello Sport reported the winger’s agent has offered him to AC Milan.
The Spaniard has three more years left on his contract with the Hornets. Speaking to Onda Cero’s program El Transistor, the 26-year-old stressed he has set his sights on leaving the English club this summer.
“Most likely there is a move to another club after a very bad season,” Deulofeu said.
The player spent a short spell on loan at the San Siro in 2017 and has now opened the door to joining Milan.
“I was very happy at Milan and today, it is a good option,” the Watford attacker explained.
Marca have relayed Deulofeu’s comments in detail, and on his future, he said: “I will probably leave Watford this summer. We will try to reach an agreement with them for my departure.
“It has been a disastrous season for us that has ended in relegation. There is interest in Spain, in Italy or in the Premier League itself.”
Barcelona appointed Ronald Koeman as their new manager and Deulofeu played under the Dutchman at Everton. He didn’t have any kind words for the Catalan club’s new coach.
“I can tell you about Koeman from my personal experience, and I have very little to tell you about Koeman. He gave me absolutely nothing. I was not happy, I asked to leave and I went to Milan,” the ex-Toffees forward stressed.
