Italy international Alessandro Diamanti is close to joining Watford, according to head coach Quique Sanchez Flores.

Diamanti has previous experience of playing in the Premier League after a brief spell at West Ham and looks set for a return as Watford’s negotiations with Guangzhou Evergrande near a conclusion.

The 32-year-old moved to the Chinese outfit from Bologna in 2014 and spent the second half of last season on loan at Fiorentina, where he scored two goals in 11 Serie A appearances.

Flores felt it unlikely that Diamanti’s deal would be finalised in time for the visit of West Brom on Saturday, as Watford look to build on their impressive 2-2 draw at Everton on the opening day.

“He’s been training with us for a few days and has put in good performances,” Flores said.

“The clubs are talking to arrange the last details and I expect him to come to us. It will be difficult for Saturday but the deal is close.”
