Matej Vydra: Heading out of Watford

The 21-year-old blasted 22 goals for the Hornets, who reached the Championship play-off final, but his rise to prominence has meant Arsenal, Tottenham and Fulham are all believed to be interested in the Czech international.

And the Udinese frontman is now desperate to test himself at the top level.

"I can't imagine him playing Championship again right now," Chovanec told the Evening Standard.

"We discussed it with the boy and he would like to play with the top players on the top level. It's difficult because he was very happy at Watford, but if you get the opportunity to play Premier League or German Bundesliga would you say no?

"He is the number one Czech international striker and he would like to play the same level competition as Petr Cech is doing."

Watford and Udinese are both controlled by the Pozzo family, who are eager for Vydra to be reunited with Gianfranco Zola next season.

"They would like him to go back to Watford next season because they want to make the team strong and they want to finish the job," added Chovanec.

"The Pozzos are always saying if the player wants to leave and the offer is good enough then let's discuss. At the moment he would like to play in the highest league. He had two or three proposals from Premier League clubs in January and he has had fresh proposals."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
