PSG linked with move for Doucoure

After impressing for Watford, it appears Doucoure has caught the eye of Ligue 1 giants PSG.

PSG have been linked with a move for Doucoure over the last season or so and those rumours have once again emerged now the January window is open.

Doucoure’s current Watford contract runs out in July of 2023.

While Javi Gracia is confident of keeping Doucoure till the end of the season, the Frenchman has admitted PSG hold a place in his heart:

“PSG holds an important place in my heart.

“They already contacted me, but I wanted to move to England at the time.

“Hearing that such clubs are interested in you, it’s a pleasure.

“I think a club like PSG are looking for a lot of players, they have a lot of leads, I’m not the only one. I’m happy to evolve at Watford and the club trusts me.”
