Watford set to clinch deal for Bologna’s Adam Masina

Watford have agreed a deal with Bologna for left-back Adam Masina, according to Sky sources.

The former Italy U21 international has agreed personal terms with the Hornets and will arrive in England for a medical this week.

Masina has a year left on his current deal with Bologna, who finished 15th in Serie A last season.

The Morocco-born full-back made 35 appearances in all competitions for Bologna last term, 34 of which came in the league.

On Monday, Watford completed the signing of Gerard Deulofeu on a five-year deal from Barcelona for an initial £11.5m fee.

Deulofeu, who spent the second half of the 2017-18 season on loan at Vicarage Road, scored one goal in seven Premier League appearances during his temporary move.
