Watford are reportedly on the verge of signing Spanish midfielder Mario Suarez from Fiorentina.
Suarez, who has won three caps for the Spanish national team, joined Fiorentina last summer in a deal that saw Stefan Savic make the switch to Atletico Madrid.
The 28-year-old has struggled to hold down a regular spot in Florence, however, and it is understood that he is keen on a move away before the end of the month.
According to Sky Sports News, Watford have agreed a deal with Fiorentina and have also offered the midfielder a four-year contract.
Suarez was part of the Atletico team that won La Liga in the 2013-14 season and also reached the Champions League final.
