Assombalonga's Watford Return?

Assombalonga's Watford Return?

Nottingham Forest forward Britt Assombalonga, a player Mark Warburton admits could leave at the right price, as much as he wants to keep him, started his career at Watford.

Could he return to Vicarage Road?

Already linked with Burnley and Huddersfield, Middlesbrough will reportedly offer the best deal to Forest for Assombalonga, but a return to the Hornets could also be an option as our friends at Vital Watford have said:

It's being reported today that Watford will attempt to do a deal with Nottingham Forest for striker Britt Assombalonga.

The Nottingham Post are reporting this morning that Watford head coach Marco Silva is preparing a £10million offer for the 24 year old player in an effort to get a deal done.

They report that Forest have already rejected one offer from Burnley worth in the region of £8million and they are too said to be returning with an uplift, but involving defender Tendayi Darikwa as a cash plus player swap.

The story complicates as Middlesbrough and Huddersfield Town are said to be interested with Boro willing potentially to pay in the region of £15million for him.

No doubt the Assombalonga speculation comes from the ongoing uncertainty over the future of Troy Deeney, but whether we'd go to £15million remains to be seen.

He did begin his career with us though, making four appearances, before moving on to Peterborough United back in 2013, but his goalscoring return for Peterborough and Forest speaks for itself.

If £10m wasn't enough from Watford then £15m would be a near impossible amount for Forest to turn down wouldn't it?

Assombalonga, 24, is a proven goalscorer but he's also had well documented issued with injuries.
