Chelsea legend Gianfranco Zola is set to return to English football.

The Sun says Zola will hold talks with Watford after the Pozzo family completed their £20million takeover of the club.

Former Italy striker Zola has been lined up to replace Sean Dyche as Hornets chief in a major overhaul at Vicarage Road.

The new Italian owners want to bring in their own men and ex-Chelsea star Zola will be joined by director of football Gianluca Nani — a former colleague at West Ham United.
