The 2 biggest decisions facing Xisco Munoz at Watford this summer

Published

This summer looks set to be a crucial one for Watford.

With the club having now secured their promotion back to the Premier League at the first time of asking, the Hornets will be desperate to ensure they remain in the top-flight of English football for more than a single season.

As a result, there will be plenty for Watford boss Xisco Munoz to consider this summer, as he aims to put together a squad that will be able to compete in the Premier League.

Here, we’ve taken a look at the two biggest decisions facing Munoz at Vicarage Road as we head into the summer transfer window.

What is the right price for Ismaila Sarr?

One Watford player whose future may once again be in the limelight this summer, is Ismaila Sarr.

The winger was linked with a move away from Vicarage Road last summer, but ultimately stayed with Watford, although his performances in helping the club to promotion this season – scoring 13 goals and providing four assists in 39 league appearances – could once again attract interest in the 23-year-old.

Watford will of course want to keep hold of Sarr if they can, but every player does of course have that price, and the Hornets may have to decide whether any club meet that once the transfer window reopens.

Does he let Ben Foster go?

Another player Watford and Munoz may well have to make a decision on this summer, is goalkeeper Ben Foster.

Recent reports from The Sun have claimed that Premier League champions elect Manchester City are interested in a move for the veteran goalkeeper this summer, as potential back-up for Ederson.

Given his top-flight experience, and the leadership qualities he possess, Foster is another player Watford may prefer to keep if possible, but if that interest from The Etihad does materialise, Munoz may have to decide whether or not he can stand in the way of the former England international if he is given the chance to end his career on the sort of high that he could do with that move.
