According to Calciomercato.com, Watford representatives met with Cambiasso in Milan last week to discuss the possibility of taking the job after Quique Sanchez Flores was sacked.

Cambiasso is qualified with his coaching badges and was assistant manager to Colombia’s Jose Pekerman at the 2018 World Cup.

Udinese have officially signed Sweden winger Ken Sema on a season-long loan from Watford.

The deal is another example of the close relationship between the two clubs, both of whom are owned by the Pozzo family.

However, the 25-year-old did not take part in either of their first two Premier League fixtures.

He has six caps for Sweden and can play anywhere down the left-hand side.

Udinese swoop for Sema

Udinese have agreed a deal to sign Watford and Sweden winger Ken Sema, according to Sportitalia.

Due to the close relationship between the two clubs and Sema’s contract still having four years left to run, Udinese are expected to take him on loan.

The 25-year-old joined Watford from Ostersunds FK last summer and went on to play 22 times for the Hornets, scoring one goal and providing three assists.

However, he does not figure in their plans this season and will instead fill the void on the Zebrette’s left flank.

Suso was their first choice, but the €40m asking price was considered excessive.

According to Radio Centro Suono Sport, Roma are turning their focus towards Spain international Deulofeu.
