Behrami set for Udinese medical

Watford midfielder Valon Behrami is returning to Serie A and due in Italy for a medical with Udinese today.

The Swiss international’s current contract will expire at the end of the season, but he is cutting it short to join Udinese.

Both clubs are owned by the Pozzo family, so they regularly exchange players.

Behrami spent much of his career in Italy, joining Genoa in 2003 and going on to feature for Verona, Lazio, Fiorentina and Napoli.

He left Serie A for Hamburger SV in 2014 and arrived at Watford a year later.

Watford and West Ham eye Taider

Bologna creative midfielder Saphir Taider is of interest to Premier League clubs Watford and West Ham United.

According to Gazzamercato, the two English sides have asked after the 25-year-old Algeria international.

He was at Bologna on loan last season, but made the move permanent for €4m in July.

In the 2016-17 Serie A campaign, Taider contributed three goals in 24 games.

This would be his second English experience, although the first was somewhat brief.

Udinese call Behrami and Taider

Udinese are considering bids for Watford midfielder Valon Behrami and Bologna’s Saphir Taider, claim Tuttosport.

Behrami spent much of his career in Italy with Genoa, Hellas Verona, Lazio, Fiorentina and Napoli.

The 32-year-old has been with Watford since the summer of 2015, which should make a transfer to Udinese very easy, seeing as both clubs are owned by the Pozzo family.

As for Taider, the Algerian Bologna creative midfielder is also of interest to Fiorentina.

Neto picks Valencia over Watford?

Neto has reportedly informed Juventus that he wants to join Valencia over Watford.

According to Calciomercato.com, Juve preferred to sell Neto to Watford as the Hornets had offered 10m for the goalkeeper – the Bianconeri’s asking price.
