Watford plan to offload Isaac Success to sister club Udinese as he is deemed surplus to requirements

ENGLISH Premier League side Watford are planning to loan their Nigerian striker Isaac Success to their sister Italian club Udinese for the forthcoming 2021/22 season as he appears to be requirements at the Hornets.


Watford, who has five Nigerians on its books, recently got promoted to the Premier League and is preparing for the life in the top flight once again. However, Success, 25, is seen as surplus to requirements and is likely to be offloaded to Udinese in Serie A, as both clubs have the same owners.


Udinese is looking to bolster its attacking options after losing talisman Rodrigo De Paul to Atletico Madrid. According to Udinese Mondo, after securing the signature of Destiny Udogie, the club has its sights on Success and  would prefer to get the striker on a loan deal.


Success had a poor campaign last season due to recurring injuries and when he returned, Watford manager Xisco Munoz did not deem it fit to upset his team balance by fielding him. Success, who has not reached his maximum potential could see a move away from Vicarage Road as an opportunity to rediscover the kind of form that made the club give him a five-year contract.


A gifted attacker who is blessed with pace, Success can play on both sides of attack and is also a physical player who can hold the ball up. With his physicality and ability to shield the ball, he would be a good fit for the Serie A side.


Isaac Success is not a stranger to Udinese, as he featured for the club's Under-19 side in the 2013/14 season. Success, who has played for the Super Eagles four times, has also had loan spells at Granada and Malaga.
