Watford's sporting director Cristiano Giaretta has said he is "evaluating every possibility" this month in order to put together a team capable of staying in the Premier League.

Speaking to Italian publication TuttoMercato he said that the Hornets are exploring options "everywhere" as they look for the necessary additions to prevent their side from suffering relegation this season.

Already through the door is left back Hassane Kamara, while Samir and Edo Kayembe are expected to follow.

Domagoj Vida is of serious interest and positive talks continue over the player.

However, Giaretta said the club will not stop assessing their options while the window is open.

“January is always special, this will be a little better than last year but no fireworks," he said.

“We look everywhere. We are doing something to improve ourselves. If there are opportunities we will see. In Italy as in France and everywhere, we are evaluating every possibility, even knowing we have a competitive squad."

With more additions expected, players are likely to head out the door as well.

One player linked with a possible move to Udinese is defender Nicolas Nkoulou, who only arrived at the start of the season as a free agent.

Asked whether the defender could be going to Italy, Giaretta said: “He started well but in the third game he got hurt. He is still dealing with an injury, we are waiting for him."
