Watford set to land £2.8 million-rated Troost-Ekong

Watford is closing in on the signing of Udinese defender, William Troost-Ekong, as per a report by Sport Witness.

The Hornets are set to strengthen their defence by bringing the defender to Vicarage Road from Serie A.

Troost-Ekong, who is 27 years old, is a Nigeria international with 42 caps to his name and is valued at £2.8 million on Transfermarkt.

Watford is looking for some new signings before the end of the transfer window after starting life back in the Championship with a win and a draw in their opening two games.

Troost-Ekong has been on the books at Udinese for the past two years and has made 66 appearances in all competitions for the Italian side.

He spent time as a youngster in London playing for the academies at Fulham and Tottenham Hotspur before moving to Holland to join FC Groningen.

Troost-Ekong then continued his travels with a year in Turkey at Bursaspor before joining Udinese in 2018.

He is now poised to move to the Championship to join Watford, with Vladimir Ivic’s side looking to seal a deal for him over the coming days.

It is set to be a busy couple of weeks ahead for the Hornets with both comings and goings expected.
