Watford Join Race To Sign Russian World Cup Star: Right Fit For Javi Gracia’s Plans?

Artem Dzyuba’s stellar performances for his national team during the 2018 edition of the FIFA World Cup witnessed the big man help guide the Russian football team to the quarter-final stage of the tournament. It was a valiant show by the host nation as they were sent crashing out of the competition by Croatia on penalties along with their dream of lifting the ultimate prize which football has to offer.

Dzyuba was lined up for a big money move to China but that has been halted and the deal seems to have broken down. Cardiff City, who booked their place in the 2018-2019 Premier League campaign with promotion from the EFL Championship , are looking to bring in the towering striker to the Cardiff City Stadium.  They are not the only English club to have shown interest in the Zenit St. Petersburg striker as Watford are also understood to be interested in strengthening their attacking options and luring the Russian man to Vicarage Road.

As we have come to observe, the big Russian striker makes good use of his physical attributes when in search of a goal. He is strong in the air and can hold up play to great effect. This allows the players supporting the attack to get into more favorable goal scoring positions with a view to putting the opposition to the sword.

For a man of his size, he is quick on his feet and is always alert to the open spaces around him.  He has a natural goal scorer’s instinct, be it scoring a goal from distance or simple tap-ins. He carries out his duty with authority and calmness. The striker is a bit rusty in his legs and needs to put in a more effective work-rate if he intends to help his team grab all three points.

He boasts 14 goals in 28 appearances with the Russian national team. Troy Deeney and company are struggling to find goals for the Hornets as Richarlison and Andre Gray failed at the attempt to consistently get the ball in the back of the net and the potential addition of the Russian attacking ace can be a big boost for them in the next season.

Dzyuba is entering the final years of his professional career and perhaps he would like to test his mettle on English soil and thus a move to Vicarage Road this summer looks legitimate for the player and the club alike.
