Following the Euros, Bachmann ended up bring linked with an exit from Watford, with even the likes of Arsenal said to be considering his signing. Now he confirms that there’s been clubs interested in him, and claims it was his choice to continue with the Hornets.
“There’ve been a few calls after the Euros, but it was clear to me from the start that I would not move. No matter what offers. Because I’m enjoying the situation at Watford right now and want to play in the Premier League for a year. I want to establish myself here.”
Bachmann now has a contract with Watford running until 2024. He conquered his place in the team in the middle of the last season, and now seems to be focused on proving himself at the Vicarage Road side.
