Watford are considering a move for Fulham left-back Joe Bryan, The Watford Observer understands.

The Hornets have scouted the 26-year-old on a number of occasions over the last two months and see him as someone who could be an answer to their defensive injury problems.

With a number of issues hampering Watford's defence throughout the current season, Bryan is a defender who could add depth to the squad, but could command a high price with his contract at Craven Cottage not set to expire until summer 2022.

The former Bristol City man joined the Cottagers for £6million in 2018.
