How will the Hornets fare back in the Premier League?

I reckon along with Norwich the top two championship teams will struggle to hold onto their PL status, certainly be amongst the relegation candidates.

With signings like that they would be only going one way.

Straight back down.

Ageing Robbie Brady and ancient Ashley Young plus unproven Eddie Nketiah.

First signing of the official transfer window this summer

Watford, newly promoted back to the Premier League, have signed promising French-Moroccan midfielder Imran Louza from FC Nantes for an undisclosed fee.

Louza, 22, arrives at Vicarage Road on a five-year deal after scoring seven goals in 35 appearances for the French Ligue 1 side this season.

He is a France Under-21 international, but formerly represented Morocco at youth level.

French media outlets have reported the fee to be £10m.

Louza joined Nantes as an eight-year-old and has played 58 times for the club since marking his debut in January 2019.

Fletcher and Rose are not the height for the Premier League. Watford would be better trusting their existing squad that earned them promotion than bringing in expensive (wages wise) has beens.
