Watford aim to snap up AC Milan midfielder Essien

Watford are ready to pounce for AC Milan midfielder Michael Essien.

The former Chelsea and Real Madrid star is coming off contract at Milan and keen to return to England.

The Sun says newly-promoted Watford are ready to snap up the veteran to add his Premier League experience to their young squad.

Essien also has offers from France and the MLS, but favours a return to the Premier League.

The midfielder, 32, has managed 13 appearances for the Rossoneri this season.
