Watford are said to be linked with Genoa striker Giovanni Simeone, who is the son of Atletico Madrid manager Diego.

Simeone enjoyed a good season in Serie A where he found the back of the net 13 times in 36 games, despite Genoa finishing 16th.

The 21-year-old made the move from Argentine side River Plate to Genoa for £4.34m last season.

According to Italian outlet Di Marzio, both AC Milan and Fiorentina are also trying to sign Simeone.

One club who will not be making a move to the Argentine international are Atletico.

His father told the press earlier this year that even though he is doing really well in Serie A, there would not be a father-son partnership.
