During the January transfer window, Watford were keen to sign Hassane Kamara from Stade de Reims.

A bid was even put forward by the Hornets, although it never appeared to match the Ligue 1 side’s €5.5m valuation at the time, meaning the left-back stayed where he was.

He made 28 appearances in all competitions this year until football was suspended, scoring two goals, and the belief is that the Premier League club never went anywhere.

According to Le Foot in France, the 26-year-old is still being monitored ‘closely’ by Watford, but they would face some competition from Lyon, who reportedly ‘appreciate’ him a lot.

The website continue by explaining the player ‘should see a door open for an exit’ this summer, but that would only happen for a price of around €6m.

For Watford, that doesn’t exactly represent a big investment, and with José Holebas’ contract expiring in the summer, a new left-back would be needed at Vicarage Road.
