Udinese have turned down a bid of £8million from an unnamed Premier League club for striker Matej Vydra, Sky Sports understands.
The Czech Republic international recently completed a season long loan with Watford, where he scored twenty-two goals in forty-four league appearances resulting in him being named Championship Player of the Year.
Two Bundesliga clubs are also understood to have made unsuccessful bids for the 21 year old, who has stated that he is unlikely to return to the Hornets, who were defeated in the semi-finals of the Championship play-offs.
Vydra has made just ten Serie A appearances for Udinese since signing from Czech side Banik Ostrava three years ago, while he also made five appearances for Club Brugge in Belgium in a loan spell during the 2011/12 campaign.
He made his international debut back in September, and has gone on to win seven caps, with both of his two goals for his country coming in the 3-0 win over Armenia last time out.
