Watford are set to sign midfielder Luigi Gaspar following his departure from Arsenal, journalist Fabrizio Romano has reported.

Gaspar is the son of former Arsenal midfielder Edu, who won a number of trophies with the club during his playing career, and now works as a technical director for the Gunners.

However, it seems that Gaspar’s own time with the North London club will be much briefer, with the 18-year-old already set for a move to pastures new.

Which club do these 27 ex-Watford players now play for?

According to this latest update, Gaspar is set to leave Arsenal this summer, and will instead join Watford, as he looks for a new challenge.

It is thought that a contract to take the teenager to Vicarage Road will be agreed soon, with the deal set to be completed on a free transfer.

Watford are of course preparing for a return to the Championship following their relegation from the Premier League at the end of the 2021/22 season.

During his time with Arsenal, Gaspar never made a first-team appearance for the club, though he featured once for the Under 23s and made 11 Under 18s appearances during an injury hit spell in North London.

This could be a rather good move for all parties you feel.

For Watford, they are signing a player who, judging by where he has been playing, has a fair amount of potential, and could therefore be something of an asset for the future.

Gaspar meanwhile, gets a fresh start that may be what he needs after those injury issues at Arsenal, and it could als help him that he is not at a club where there will be as much focus on him due to those family connections.

With that in mind, this does seem as though it could be a promising move for all involved, and it will be intriguing to see just how it works out.
