Premier League new boys Watford are reportedly wanting the signature of Atalanta’s 28-year-old midfielder Luca Cigarini.

Reports say that Watford are one of a number of clubs chasing the former Italy under 21, who had made 20 appearances for them.

Cigarini has made 33 appearances this season for Atlanta, and has successfully helped his team avoid relegation to Serie B.

Bundesliga sides Wolfsburg and Bayer Leverkusen, as well as Serie A sides Torino an Sampdoria area also interested in the player.

The 28-year-old has been said to have a £7m price tag, as his current contract runs out in June 2018.

Cigarini is a defensive midfielder, who likes going forward as he has found himself getting three assists this season and one goal in the Coppa Italia. in his 33 appearances, Luca has managed to pick up nine yellow cards and one red card.

Writers View: I think moving to Watford would be a great move for the 28-year-old, as he has not yet managed to get in the Italian national team, but playing in the Premier League may allow him to do so.
