Watford are reportedly interested in signing Diego Simeone's son Giovanni this summer.
The Hornets are hoping to pip AC Milan and Fiorentina to the Genoa prospect's signature, according to gianlucadimarzio.com.
Simeone, 21, was one of Genoa's star players last season, netting 13 goals in 36 outings as the club avoided relegation to the Italian second tier.
Watford's new manager Marco Silva is said to be aiming to make the Argentine striker his first signing, but they could face stiff competition from Milan, who are reportedly willing to offer Gianluca Lapadula as a makeweight.
Genoa signed Simeone from Argentine side River Plate in a deal worth around £2.5m last year.
