Throughout this summer we’ve covered various reports on Stefano Okaka potentially leaving Watford at some point.

The striker is out of favour at Vicarage Road having spent the second half of last season on loan at Udinese.

He’s yet to feature for the Hornets this season and has been linked with a move elsewhere as a result. It now seems his future may lie back in Serie A with Cagliari.

Sky Sport Italy report the Italian side are negotiating a swap deal with Watford for the 30-year-old forward.

That would see Okaka return to Serie A permanently, while Watford would take fellow forward Alberto Cerri in exchange.

Cerri is a 23-year-old striker who joined from Juventus permanently this summer, after scoring one goal for Cagliari in 17 games on loan there last season.

The proposed deal makes little sense for Watford, though. While they would get rid of Okaka, they would not be able to register Cerri until January at the earliest following the closure of the English transfer window earlier this month.

A strange one, to say the least.
