Watford in shock Barca outcast link

Watford are reportedly close to signing Barcelona winger Gerard Deulofeu - who has been earmarked by new head coach Javi Gracia.

Catalan-based RAC1 claims the 22-year-old player is 'approaching' a move to Vicarage Road after finding it tough to break into the Barca side this season.

The Spain international returned to the Nou Camp last summer when Barcelona used their buy-back clause to get him back from Everton and he initially did well, scoring against Gracia's Malaga side in October.

But that match marked the most recent of Delofeu's five La Liga starts this term and the recent addition of Phillipe Coutinho has pushed him further down the pecking order.

RAC1 explains the Barcelona outcast "is one of new boss Javi Gracia's objectives" at Watford but stresses an agreement for his transfer has yet to be reached.
