The 18-year-old Hungarian striker is highly-rated at the Serie A club and is being chased by a host of clubs across the continent.

Otto Novothny, the player's father, believes staying at Napoli is the most likely scenario but a switch to work with Hornets boss - and former Napoli star - Gianfranco Zola cannot be ruled out.

"It seems that Soma will play in the under-age team at Napoli but there is a chance that he will go to another team on loan - maybe in Serie A or Serie B," he told Hungarian daily Kisalfold.

"But it is also possible that my son will go to another country. Hoffenheim are interested in him as well as FC Zurich and Dnipro (Dnipropetrovsk).

"But his former coach at Napoli works as Zola's assistant at Watford and he'd like Soma to sign there on loan."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
