On Wednesday, Messaggero Veneto explained ‘there is an agreement in place’ between Jens Stryger Larsen and Watford, and Gino Pozzo should transfer the Udinese player to the English club.

The 30-year-old has been a regular for the Serie A side since arriving at the club from Austria Wien in 2017, and with a year left on his contract, he could leave in the summer.

TuttoMercatoWeb have looked at the claims made by the newspaper local to the Italian club, and provide their own take on the possibility of the defender moving to Vicarage Road.

Watford achieved promotion to the top flight after finishing second in the Championship table.

It’s claimed the Denmark international will not play in the Premier League next season as ‘there is no confirmation’ of his possible sale to the Hornets. TMW further add it’s an ‘impossible hypothesis’ for Larsen to join Xisco’s side this summer.

Even though the Pozzo family own both the clubs, the report explains they have ‘always aimed at strengthening’ Udinese and not the opposite. Therefore, Udinese have said ‘no to the sale of Larsen’ to Watford.
