Watford Notch Up This All-Round English Striker: Their Best Business Of The Summer?

After a season of grave disappointment, Watford are looking forward to make amends for their mistakes and make the new season a good one in terms of results. The Hornets are looking forward to bring in quite a few players this season to boost their side to perform better and end up in a far more respectable position than the last term.

One such player, Andre Gray, who was eyed by their new boss Marco Silva for quite some time now, has been bagged by the Premier League club from their fellow rivals Burnley. The English international has played a very important role in the survival of the Clarets in the top flight in the last term and was on the radar of an array of clubs in the Premier League as well as the Championship.

A composed player and a sharp shooter, the 26-year-old will be taking on the role of an attacking spearhead in the Watford side for this season. The English international is known for his swift moves and is equally dangerous with his foot as well his head to get the ball in the opposition net. The Watford manager Marco Silva is well aware of the abilities of the English striker and will be hoping to utilise them to the full in the following days.

Watford faced an acute problem of scoring goals against their opponents throughout the last season and have been looking for some quality reinforcements to be brought into the side for the new season. They will be more than happy with the signing of the 26-year-old English striker and will hope that he gives them the much-needed boost to bring glory to Vicarage Road this term.

Gray was one of the main influencers in Burnley’s staying back in the Premier League in the last term. His ominous physical presence in the opposition box is good enough to fend off the opponent defenders and has helped him in scoring goals in the recent past. He featured in 75 matches for the Clarets and scored 33 goals for them during his tenure with the club.

He is also known to be dangerous from set piece situations and his darting runs into the heart of the defence with and without the ball were wily enough to outfox the opposition and score goals to keep his team in advantage. Watford will hope that he continues on his merry way to score goals for them in the new season and let them end the season on a high note.
