Watford handed boost in hunt for World Cup midfielder

13th June 2018, 17:46 by Gareth Freeman

Watford will be able to secure the services of Mahmoud Hassan for just 5million euros, his current club Kasımpasa have revealed.

The Hornets have been heavily linked with Hassan, commonly known as Trezeguet after the former France international, but they could still miss out on his signature.

Turkish club Kasimpasa vice president Hasan Hilmi Oksuz has told beIN Sports that the 23-year-old Egypt international has a release clause of 5million euros, which would represent a bargain for Watford.

However, Trezeguet is unlikely to make any decision on his future until after Egypt's World Cup campaign has come to an end.

If the attacking midfielder manages to impress for The Pharaohs in Russia there could be increased competition and Watford may have to move quickly after Egypt's tournament is over if they are to land Trezeguet.

Bournemouth have also been linked with Trezeguet in the past and there is likely to be further competition from across Europe if he manages to make a statement at the World Cup.
