Former Sunderland target Obbi Oulare is expected to join newly-promoted Watford.

Sunderland were one of several clubs keeping a close eye on 6ft 5in Oulare at the end of last season after the 19-year-old had made the breakthrough into Club Brugge’s first-team.

Dick Advocaat has been keen to add a physical targetman to his side this summer, yet after splashing out £7.75million on Fabio Borini, Sunderland are not expected to bring in any further strikers.

Oulare is en route to England for discussions with a Premier League team, and it is reported that Watford are the club who are leading the chase for the Belgian international.
