Watford launch bid for Roma striker Gregoire Defrel

Watford have launched a bid for Roma striker Gregoire Defrel.

The Hornets are willing to cough up big to ferry the Frenchman to England this month.

Il Messaggero says Watford want to take Defrel on-loan to the end of the season with a permanent option.

Watford are seeking to sign Defrel for six months for €3m and aim for an outright deal to the tune of €20m.

Roma's sale of Edin Dzeko to Chelsea this week isn't expected to affect Watford's negotiations for Defrel.
