Watford are challenging Southampton for the signature of young French full-back Enock Kwateng, according to reports.

The 21-year-old won the U19 European Championships in 2016 alongside players like Kylian Mbappe and Issa Diop and has since broken through to the Nantes first team.

Reports suggest that both the Hornets and the Saints had scouts in France to watch the defender on Saturday, with his contract set to expire this summer.
