What are the latest developments with Andre Gray at Watford amid Swansea and West Brom links?



As we enter the final couple of weeks of the summer transfer window, clubs are set to battle it out to sign their final few targets, and players will see their future decided.

One such individual who it seems could find himself in that position, is Watford striker Andre Gray.

Following the Hornets promotion back to the Premier League at the end of last season, Gray has so far remained at Watford, although it seems there is scope for that to change before the window closes at the end of month.

It was reported last week by Football Insider that West Brom are interested in a move for Gray, while subsequent reports from the same outlet on Tuesday claimed that the Baggies’ Championship rivals Swansea City are keen to sign the 30-year-old on loan.

Given it was reported earlier in the summer window that Watford had offered Gray to Blackburn as part of a deal to try and lure Adam Armstrong – who has since joined Southampton – to Vicarage Road, it does seem as though the Hornets are willing to let the striker leave this summer.

But with Gray into the final year of his contract with the Hornets, meaning this could be their last chance to receive a fee for him, you wonder whether they may look to sell the striker rather than loan him this summer.

There is of course, also the issue of whether or not Gray would be willing to move away from Watford this summer.

Speaking about Gray’s stance on a move after those links with West Brom emerged, The Athletic’s Adam Levanthal revealed that the striker is not pushing for a move, but that he could move on if the deal was right.

Levanthal also went on to note that Gray is unlikely to be cheap for any interested clubs this summer, something that could make it difficult for Championship clubs to complete a deal for the striker with finances tight for many at this moment in time.

It seems therefore, that while a move for Gray by the end of the month is far from impossible, there may be plenty of issues to be addressed before it can happen.

As a result, you wonder whether this is one that could go all the way down to the very last stages of the window.
