3 Alternatives For 27 Y/O Spanish Ace At Watford Including This Belgian Defensive Midfielder

Watford manager, Javi Gracia had tried to bring Ignacio Camacho to Vicarage Road in the dying minutes of the January transfer window but VfL Wolfsburg were reluctant to let him go. Camacho is the captain of the Bundesliga outfit and is one of the most influential figures in the club ranks. The 27-year-old had formerly played under Gracia during his Malaga days and is highly rated by the Hornets boss.

Obviously taking over a new job in a different league is always overwhelming and managers lick their lips over the chance of signing players they are well acquainted with. The Golden Boys did make some additions through Gerard Deulofeu, Pontus Dahlberg and Dodi Lukebakio but Gracia still needs an experienced presence to lead the midfield.

Abdoulaye Doucouré has been an inspiring figure for Watford this season both offensively and defensively. He is drawing interests from the top-tier sides and Gracia will have to convince the Frenchman to stay. If he does end up leaving, the Hornets should consider the following options.

Leander Dendoncker

He currently plies his trade with Belgium outfit, RSC Anderlecht and was in Watford’s books for a trade in the January window. The 22-year-old is a versatile presence around the football pitch and is capable of covering every blade of grass. His primary role is that of a defensive midfielder but has the tenacity and discipline to appear as a centre back while making a mark in the attacking midfield position.

Fabian Ruiz

Once considered as just a rotational option, the 21-year-old has broken into the first team of Real Betis from the heart of park registering 2 goals and 5 assists in 19 appearances so far into the season.

Ruiz is an attacking midfielder by trade but can appear from a deeper position and from the wing areas as well. The 6 feet 2 inches lanky presence around the central circle wiggles his way past opposition defenders and has the vision to formulate attacks at will. Ruiz’s premium technical abilities paired with the composure to hold onto the ball in tight spaces makes him a huge threat in the La Liga.

Morgan Schneiderlin

The Frenchman has been in poor form for the Toffees this season but has still managed to receive regular minutes under Sam Allardyce. Maybe an escape to the Hornets will finally see Schneiderlin return to his glory days with Southampton.
