Nordin Amrabat could have played his last game for Watford as Deportivo La Coruna are showing an interest, according to reports from El Ideal Gallego, via the Hertfordshire Mercury.

Having spent a couple of years playing for Malaga in La Liga, Amrabat has topflight experience in Spain, seen as key to the recruitment strategy of Deportivo boss Pepe Mel, who had a spell in the Premier League at West Brom previously.

Amrabat started last season well enough, much like Watford as a whole really, but an ankle injury then sidelined him for most of the second half of the campaign, ruling the Dutch-born Moroccan international out of the Africa Cup of Nations at the turn of the year and out of action at club level until April.

Without a goal to his name, limited assists too, Amrabat hasn’t enjoyed the most successful of spells at Watford, since signing from Malaga, so probably wouldn’t be one of those on the ‘mustn’t sell’ list of Marco Silva.

But the major sticking point to any deal for Amrabat, 30, could be his wage demands. It isn’t thought Deportivo would be able to match his deal at Vicarage Road if Watford allowed the ex-PSV Eindhoven and Galatasaray winger to leave.
