The club's chiefs see Etebo as a great player who will help their quest next season in the Premier League.

Having played the last two seasons of his career on loan in Turkey, Etebo has no future at Stoke City and moving to the English topflight will definitely be a great one for his career.

The deal would help Watford move out midfielder Hughes who is fancied by Newcastle United.

Steve Bruce is keen on Hughes but wants to do the deal within his budget.

Already, Watford have the likes of Isaac Success, Emmanuel Dennis and Troost-Ekong who are Nigerians and Etebo won't have a problem adapting with the squad.

In the Super Eagles, Etebo is also an important member of the squad having played at the 2018 World Cup and 2019 African Cup of Nations in Egypt.
