Getafe’s Guaita linked to Premier League side Watford

January 2, 2018 Off By Sports Writer

Getafe keeper Vicente Guaita has been linked with a move to Premier League side Watford in a move that could happen this January.

The former Valencia stopper will see his time at the Madrid based club come to an end in the summer and he is free to discuss terms with any potential suitors.

Whilst he would be allowed to leave for free, Watford officials are keen to make a cut-price deal this month, according to The Independent.

Guaita does have a release clause of £7m installed in his Getafe contract, but interest from the English club and Turkish champions Besiktas could see them sell for half of that figure.

The 30-year-old has been in good form this season, having kept an impressive six clean sheets in his opening 17 league games.

Guaita is currently in his third season with Getafe, after spending five years with Valencia and a loan spell with Recreativo.

His potential arrival to Watford would see current number one Heurelho Gomes drop to reserve, whilst Orestis Karnezis would almost certainly be made available to leave.

Should Guaita leave, former Arsenal keeper Emiliano Martinez, who joined last summer – could be in line for a starting place at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez, whilst Filip Manojlovic would also be vying for a chance.
