The 27-year-old joined Watford from Udinese in the summer and is now closer than ever to realising the dream he had as a child.

“My dream is to play in the Premier League and to do that with a team like Watford would be ideal,” he told the Standard.

“Everyone’s idea here is to go back to the Premier League. That is the main focus. I can feel the energy in the group from the guys that are here.

“It was always the idea to come back to England. I was just waiting for the right opportunity. There were some in the past, however the choice wasn’t 100 per cent at the time.

“Now I felt like this was the right moment to come back here and prove myself.”
