Watford are one of three Premier League clubs interested in signing Tunisian international forward Youseff Msakni, reports claim.

The reports, which first originated in the striker’s home country, claim that Msakni, who currently plays for Al Duhail in Qatar, has been in England this week trying to finalise a deal with one of Watford, Cardiff City or Brighton & Hove Albion.

Those three clubs are reported to be considering an initial six-month loan for the 28-year-old, with a view to a permanent deal, after the striker missed the World Cup in Russia with a knee ligament injury.

Msakni scored 23 goals and provided 14 assists in 20 league games last season.
