Udinese could consider selling Watford hero Matej Vydra after an offer came in from Lokomotiv Moscow.
The striker is still owned by Udinese, but on loan to satellite club Watford, who belong to the same stable under the Pozzo family.
He has become a fan favourite in the Championship with 20 goals and bagged a brace for the Czech Republic in World Cup qualifiers this week.
The 20-year-old was also named Championship Player of the Year at the Football League Awards.
According to Russian site testataizvestia.ru, Lokomotiv Moscow are ready to make a large offer to bring in Vydra as a replacement for Roman Pavlyuchenko.
For the moment, Udinese’s plan is to keep Vydra at Watford for one more season so he can continue to mature, hopefully with promotion to the Premier League.
However, he remains on loan and this is purely a spell to help him gain experience.
