Highly-rated Napoli youngster Soma Novothny attracting interest from Watford according to player's father

Watford could strike a loan deal for highly-rated Napoli striker Soma Novothny, according to the player's father.
Novothny, 18, is being linked with several clubs in Europe but could be tempted to link up with former Napoli coach Dodo Sormani - who now works at the Hornets.
"It seems that Soma will play in the under-age team at Napoli but there is a chance that he will go to another team on loan - maybe in Serie A or Serie B," father Otto Novthny told Hungarian daily Kisalfold.
"But it is also possible that my son will go to another country. Hoffenheim are interested in him as well as FC Zurich and Dnipro (Dnipropetrovsk).
"But his former coach at Napoli works as Zola's assistant at Watford and he'd like Soma to sign there on loan."
