I missed this one the other day but apparently we are one of a number of Premier League sides keeping a close eye on Watford striker Tamas Priskin.
The Hungarian’s agent claims that his forward’s potency in front of goal this year has earned him plenty of admirers – and reckons that a move away from Vicarage Road could follow in the summer.
He scores many goals and has had a fine year, so he has become an obvious target in the transfer market. It is true that there are teams – Fulham, Middlesbrough and Hull City – that have shown an interest but it is too early to talk about any detailed offer.
I could mention around 10-15 teams that are interested. And they are not only from England, but from Italy as well. It is very likely that he will leave Watford this summer. But it is not out of the question for him to extend his current deal with Watford, which is set to expire in 2010.
He is still young and we want to find a team for him that offers a step forward and where he can play regular football. That would be the case at Middlesbrough, as they may be in the Championship next season with Watford, but they have a good chance of going back up to the Premier League at the first attempt.
Priskin has scored 11 goals this season for Watford and his impressive strike rate has helped him force his way back in the Hungarian national side. Of course, a move to Craven Cottage could see Priskin join up with his international team-mate Zoltan Gera.
