Udinese forward Isaac Success has revealed holding talks with players at Watford ahead of his move to the Italian club this summer.
Success moved to Udinese at the end of August in another Pozzo special between the two clubs.
He arrived in Italy in a £1.62m deal, bringing about an end to a five-year spell with the Hornets that began when he arrived for £13.5m from Granada in 2016.
His time at Watford was not quite the success he would have hoped for, with him managing just six goals and five assists in 72 games for the club.
Indeed, the last few years have been difficult for him on the pitch, with a six-month loan spell at Malaga in 2018 only yielding one goal in nine appearances.
He’s now hoping for a better time of things at Udinese and has revealed he spoke to players at Watford, several of whom have also played at Udinese in the past, to get a gauge on the Italian club.
“In recent years at Watford, I played a little less, but I always gave everything for the cause,” Alfredo Pedulla’s website report him saying.
“I am extremely happy to be here to prove my worth.
“Although I arrived less than a fortnight ago, I already feel at home because I already knew some players who had already played at Watford and I had also spoken to them before arriving here.
“Everyone spoke well of this club; it’s a great challenge for me because I wanted to try a new experience, and I can’t wait to get involved.
“Before arriving in Udine, I also had talks with some members of the technical staff. This immediately gave me a lot of confidence because I could perceive from all parts of the club this great desire to have me here with them.”
