Matej Vydra's goalscoring form for Watford is said to have alerted Arsenal.

Arsenal are reportedly leading the race to sign Watford centre-forward Matej Vydra.

The 20-year-old, who is one of a number of players on loan with Watford, has scored 20 goals in the Championship this season.

That form is believed to have alerted a number of Premier League clubs, including Arsenal, who are keen to sign the Czech Republic international in the summer, according to The People.

However, the report has claimed that his parent club Udinese would want at least £10m before they considered parting with the striker.

Chief scout Steve Rowley is thought to have watched Vydra in action recently.
