Watford midfielder Abdoulaye Doucoure has confirmed he is set to leave Watford.
The midfielder has been the most standout player for the Hornets this season and has attracted interests from all over the world. The 26 year old has taken his gameplay to another level since his arrival at Vicarage Road two seasons ago.
The French is very much aware of the interests he has had in the past few months and now wants to move towards a new direction. A number of clubs including French giants Paris Saint Germain are very eager to take him under their fold.
Watford manager Javi Gracia is determined to keep him at the club but the player himself is very keen to explore new fields. “I think I am going to leave Watford. The club know my ambitions and want to help me get to the next level.
“I’m flattered by the interest of PSG but for the moment there’s nothing concrete. I will focus on my performance for my club. I’ve not had contact with PSG and they’ve not contacted Watford.
“My goal is to play well for Watford and then maybe join a Champions League team.
“This winter we’ll study all possibilities on offer. The most important thing for me is to continue to progress and with my performances.
“Staying in England is a possibility and the Italian league is becoming more interesting. There are clubs who have returned to show interest in me again.
“The first criteria for me is that the club plays in the Champions League.”
