Hornets close in on Dahlberg


Watford are believed to be leading the hunt to land Swedish goalkeeper Pontus Dahlberg in the January transfer window.

The 18-year-old played 29 of Gothenburg’s 30 league encounters last term which ended in November and now it’s thought the Hornets are closing in on the highly-rated teenager.

Dahlberg’s performances in the Swedish top flight are also believed to have attracted the interest of both Napoli and RB Leipzig however it looks like Watford could get to the shot-stopper first.

Reports have suggested Dahlberg could be in the UK this week to discuss terms, with Watford hoping to get a deal agreed before the start of the January window.
