Watford of England striker, Isaac Success is attracting interest from Espanyol of Spain, CSKA Moscow of Russia and FC Nantes of France, with high prospects of a January deal coming his way, megasportsarena.com reports.
With Success said to be eagerly looking forward to leaving The Hornets, following his lack of sufficient playing time in their squad, talk has erupted about the possibility of a loan this month for the former BJ Foundation of Benin City, Udinese of Italy and Granada of Spain attacker.
However, in a smart move to outbid all other suitors, CSKA, who once had Super Eagles’ captain, Ahmed Musa and top striker, Aaron Samuel Olanere on their cards, have quickly travelled to England to hold direct discussions with Success.
Foot Mercato reports that The Armymen are currently holding talks with representatives of Success, who is also said to be attracting interest from a number of French clubs, though CSKA are regarded as favourites to get the UAE 2013 FIFA U-17 World Cup gold medalist.
With a view towards making their interest concrete, a CSKA delegation planned to be at Prenton Park to watch Watford’s FA Cup replay against Tranmere Rovers on Tuesday and check on the striker, but the game had to be called off at the last minute, due to a storm across Britain.
The Hornets’ third-round replay had to be called off, as Storm Brendan battered Britain, with scary forecast revealing that it could lead to more fixture chaos for Manchester United and Wolverhampton Wanderers on a packed schedule.
Nonetheless, officials and scouts from CSKA said they were not discouraged, and immediately put in plans for another day, as the Russian army-owned outfit continued efforts to get a deal with the Super Eagles’ fringe player, amidst reports that they are prepared to buy Success in an outright transfer, if Watford make him available.
It promises to be a huge career revival for Success, who moved to Watford in the summer of 2016 for a fee of 15 million euros and is contracted to the club until June 2023.
However, the 24-year-old striker, who played on loan at Malaga of Spain for the second half of the 2017/18 campaign, has struggled with injuries this season, and limited his appearances to just six matches in all competitions, of which four were as a substitute in the Premier League.
