Watford head coach Javi Gracia has told player Abdoulaye Doucoure to just focus on performing well for the rest of the campaign rather than thinking about other clubs.
He has impressed for Watford this term, which started out under ex-manager Marco Silva, netting seven Premier League goals.
While a guest on a French tv channel, the 25-year-old, who joined from Rennes in 2016, claimed that the likes of Tottenham, Liverpool and Arsenal were all “interested in me”.
The Spaniard, who was appointed at the end of January, insists there has been no discussion about anything other than the job in hand at Watford which sees Premier League action continue at home against Everton on Saturday.
“I have spoken with him about the movement when we play against Everton, but not about that,”
“I do not know if there are other significant clubs interested in Doucoure or other players.
“But if there are clubs interested it is because they are playing well.
“I am interested in them playing well, and we will see what happens in the future.” – the Watford manager said.
The Hornets have not been in action since the Premier League loss at West Ham on February 10, which left them in 11th spot.
