Watford Youngster Attracting French Interest

Lille boss Christophe Galtier is an admirer of Watford forward Dodi Lukebakio and admits they could move for his services this summer.

The 21-year-old joined Watford in January 2018 on a four-and-a-half-year deal after impressing in his homeland of Belgium.

Lukebakio made one appearance in the Premier League during the second half of 2017-18 before being loaned out to Fortuna Dusseldorf last season.

He caught the eye in the Bundesliga, scoring 10 goals in 31 league outings, and could be offered the chance to sign for Lille.

The French outfit expect to lose striker Nicolas Pepe this summer and Lukebakio is one of four potential replacements. Galtier said: “He is a player with a certain potential, who is 21 years old, who is young…and who has a good season with Dusseldorf.”
