Watford could move for ex-Hull City centre-back Andrea Ranocchia after it emerged Inter Milan are yet to offer him a new deal.
The 30-year-old is out of contract at the San Siro at the end of the season, when he will be able to walk away as a free agent.
And now TMW has suggested that Inter have not initiated contact with Rannochia’s representatives about extending his stay at the club.
That could come as a transfer boost for Watford, who have been linked with a move for the Italian in recent months.
And they could attempt to land a cut-price deal when the January transfer window opens or wait until the summer when they could snap him up for nothing.
