Watford offer €7.5m for Santos defender Lucas Verissimo

Watford have submitted a €7.5m bid for Santos central defender Lucas Verissimo, according to Globo Esporte.

The 25-year-old has been a regular in the Santos side since 2017 after rising through the youth system.

And a move to England could be on the cards with Watford making a sizable offer of €7.5m.

Santos have not yet responded to Watford’s proposal, but financial problems at the club could force their hand.

However, as Globo points out, even if the deal advances, Verissimo’s future may be uncertain.

The reason is that Watford have the same owners as Udinese, and they could decide to park him at the Serie A club.

European heavyweights Chelsea and Inter have also been linked with a move for Verissimo recently.
