Watford are still in discussions over a summer move for Kwadwo Baah, according to The Athletic’s Adam Leventhal.
The Hornets are hoping to tie up a deal for a player who is regarded as one of the hottest prospects in the EFL.
Baah has emerged as a regular first team player for Rochdale this term and has made 43 appearances in total for the League One club, however with his contract due to expire at the end of the season it seems that the 18-year-old is facing an uncertain future.
Football League World exclusively revealed last month that West Ham United were plotting a move for the winger after a proposed move to Manchester City fell through, however it now seems that the Hornets are in pole position.
Sky Sports have reported that Baah is now undergoing a medical at Vicarage Road, but according to The Athletic’s Watford reporter Adam Leventhal, it seems that there’s still work to do in terms of finalising a compensation figure.
