Great, Gianluigi Buffon? Watford should pull out all the stops to get this done. Well, this arrival could be an international goalkeeper but unfortunately it wouldn’t be the Italian one.

Norberto Neto, who is poised to drop behind Buffon and expected summer arrival from Arsenal Wojciech Szczesny, could join Watford as one of Marco Silva’s first signings.

Added competition for Heurelho Gomes is needed, an eventual successor in fact. If Watford can overcome interest from Valencia and Napoli this could end up being Gomes’ countryman Neto, 27, according to ClubCall.

Juventus reportedly lost faith in the Brazilian keeper after his performance in the Coppa Italian meeting with Napoli back in April, hence the impending arrival of Szczesny as the Italian champions seek an heir to the throne of the legendary Buffon, poised to retire next summer.

As Neto’s available he could come to Vicarage Road, providing those rivals for his signature are seen off. Then again, as the report pointed out, as a non-EU passport holder landing the keeper could prove more problematic than simply overcoming others to sign him.
