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.
