Watford are ready to make a swoop for FC Groningen star Albert Rusnak, according to reports

Watford recently took the questionable decision of dispensing with the services of manager Quique Sanchez Flores despite the club enjoying a fine Premier League campaign.

Life moves on though and the Hornets have moved quickly in order to secure the services of Walter Mazzarri as a replacement for Flores and the 54-year-old certainly brings a lot of experience as well as caliber to Vicarage Road.

It is believed that Mazzarri has already drawn up plans to strengthen his squad with a couple of signings and now according to reports emerging out of England, claims have been made that the new Watford boss has identified Albert Rusnak as a target.

Rusnak wanted by Watford

Rusnak is currently plying his trade for Dutch outfit FC Groningen and he enjoyed a fine campaign last term, scoring 5 goals as well as providing 2 assists in 42 appearances in all competitions.

At 21, Rusnak is considered as one of the most promising young players in Europe and it has been claimed that Watford are interested in securing the services of the attacking midfielder.

Rusnak has prior experience in England, having spent five seasons at Manchester City as a youth player and he would surely be open to a return to the Premier League with Watford.
