Watford are not planning much business, although injury to Roberto Pereyra may change that. The interest in Ashley Young predates this, while another central defender is possible. Bringing back Young would represent a big signing for Watford.
Watford have significant funds and are willing to spend big.
Tony Pulis wants players who will go straight into the starting XI. He wants a defensive midfielder, striker, leftback and centre-half. Who fits the bill? Manchester United’s Morgan Schneiderlin is the top target, but they face competition from Everton. Leicester’s Jeff Schlupp is an option, plus a striker with pace. How much can they spend? More than £25 million, with a large chunk of the money left over from the summer.
