Watford will look to sign Sassuolo defender Francesco Acerbi

According to the football transfer rumours in Italian Media, Watford will look to sign Sassuolo defender Francesco Acerbi.

Francesco Acerbi has joined Sassuolo from Genoa for a fee in the region of 3.2 million euros in July 2013. The 29 year-old has a valid contract with Sassuolo until June 2018.

Since his arrival from Genoa, Francesco Acerbi has scored 11 goals in 127 games for Sassuolo, including four goals in 44 games in all competitions this season.

The 29-year-old is considered to be one of the best defenders in Sassuolo.

Francesco Acerbi has represented Italy since November 2014. As a member of Italy national football team, Acerbi has won only two caps.

The Italy international is a player who has impressed many European clubs in the last few seasons, and it is understood that Watford manager Walter Mazzarri would prefer playing him as a centre-back.

Premier League club Everton are apparently trailing Watford in the pursuit of Sassuolo defender Francesco Acerbi.

How strong that interest is and whether Watford will make a summer move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
