Watford Reportedly Face Battle to Keep Star Man This Summer as West Brom Eye Swoop

Troy Deeney could be tempted to leave Watford this summer, with West Brom understood to be keen on the striker, according to the ?Evening Standard.

The Englishman nearly left the club last summer for champions Leicester in a £20m move, but ended up signing a new deal five-year at Vicarage Road – now one year later, the Hornets may face another battle to keep their captain.

Deeney has been a hugely important player for the club since his arrival from Walsall in 2010 and has developed into somewhat of a club stalwart.

This season he has bagged 10 Premier League goals and notched four assists for his teammates, and has helped the club all but secure another campaign of top flight football next season.

But according to the paper, Deeney has not always seen eye to eye with manager Walter Mazzarri and could be ready to ‘examine his options.’

One such club that could put themselves in line to sign the striker are the Baggies, who have enjoyed a good season under Tony Pulis and are looking good for a top half finish – despite having embarked on a six-match winless league run.

Albion have gone through the current season with only two recognised strikers in their ranks in Salomon Rondon and Hal Robson-Kanu, and could launch a summer move to lure Deeney to the Hawthorns to shake things up a bit.?
