Watford interested in signing Inter star, could cost them €10m

Watford are interested in signing Brazilian defender Juan Jesus, according to Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport.

Juan Jesus was a key player for Walter Mazzarri during his time at Inter, and it seems he wants to bring him to England. The 24-year-old has lost his place in Roberto Mancini's first team, after the arrivals of Joao Miranda and Jeison Murillo, and the interest wouldn't be a huge surprise. 

Gazzetta don't talk of any offers from Watford yet, but the player could cost around €10m, according to another Italian website Calciomercato.

Marseille and Besiktas are also said to be interested in Juan Jesus, but the lure of playing the Premier League, and higher wages, could work in Watford's favour. The player has managed just over 1700 minutes of football this season, and could be looking to move elsewhere in the hope of regular playing time.

Marseille are going through huge financial difficulties at the moment and wouldn't be able to compete, whereas the Premier League is surely more attractive than Besiktas.
