Watford Should Look At Marco Parolo This Summer

With the 1-0 away win over West Brom at the weekend thanks to soon to be player of the season Heurelho Gomes for saving two penalties from Saido Berahino, Watford have almost certainly cemented their top-flight status for next season after moving on to 41 points. They’re only 5 games to go until the end of the season which means we’re edging closer to the ever iconic Summer transfer window which also means fans will start to look at players their clubs should sign and players they should get rid of. I personally don’t think we should get rid of anyone unless a ridiculous offer comes in for a player or they want to leave, It wouldn’t make sense to, we should just keep the players we do have and bring in better quality so we have good depth rather than a good eleven. That being said, I’ve highlighted a player I would love Watford to attempt at signing and that player is Marco Parolo of Lazio, anyone that follows me on Twitter would know that I’m a massive fan of the 18 capped Italy International. The reason behind this is because, throughout this season, we have severely lacked a goalscoring midfielder, a player that has the knack of arriving at the right time in the box to put the ball in the back off the net, a Lampard esque player if you were. The Italian last season enjoyed his best ever season in Italy, hitting 11 goals in 40 games for Lazio, 10 of them coming in the league. This season, however, he’s only managed 6 goals in 35 games but Lazio as a team are having a poor season. I’m hoping because Watford have Italian connections the Pozzo’s could lure him to Vicarage Road and give us the midfielder we’re so badly craving. Now because Parolo has just turned 31, the fee itself would be reasonable and the wages wouldn’t be too high and it’s being reported that Lazio are willing to listen to offers for him in the Summer and if Flores and Co are looking for a goalscoring midfielder, Parolo would be the perfect solution.
