Serie A outfit Udinese have today confirmed they have rejected offers for young striker Matej Vydra.
The prolific forward, who spent the season on loan at Championship side Watford has been interesting giants Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur along with other sides across Europe.
One Premier League side have had an offer of £8 million rejected for the Czech Republic International, with two Bundesliga sides also seeing their initial bids knocked back.
Vydra looks destined for a move to one of Europe’s elite sides over the coming weeks after announcing he wouldn’t be making a move back to the Hornets next season via his agent Ondrej Chovanec in an interview with fotbal.idnes.cz:
“I can’t imagine it,”
“Talks are starting. I can say that some clubs from those two leagues (England and Germany) have contacted us but I won’t be specific. I strictly avoid doing that.”
“They won’t even be considering offers of six or eight million euros. They are imagining the same price that Manchester United paid for Zaha for the transfer from Crystal Palace.”
At 21, Vydra has the world at his feet and needs to move to a side across Europe who can guarantee him first team football to help aid his career. He was top goalscorer at Watford last season scoring 20 goals and was also announced as the Championship Player of the Season.
