Watford Opinion: Can Andre Zambo Anguissa help Watford flourish?
Watford are in good shape at the moment, unlike a few other Premier League clubs, and they sit eight in the Premier League. Despite losing a few managers, the Hornets, under Javi Gracia, have played some great football but more so, the club could lose Doucoure in the summer.
While there are many players who can replace the 26-year-old, Watford have to look for players within their financial reach.
That doesn’t leave them with many options, but it does add Andre Zambo Anguissa to the list. The 23-year-old has struggled since arriving at Fulham but has still been one of the bright lights in an otherwise terrible season for the Cottagers.
Still only 23 years old, the Cameroon international is a talent who Watford shouldn’t miss out on. Given that chances are high that Fulham could get relegated at the end of the season, Watford should push hard to sign Anguissa.
A versatile midfielder, the 23-year-old prefers playing as a defensive midfielder but is versatile enough to play anywhere in the midfield. However, it’s in the middle of the park that the Cameroonian shines, thanks to his never-ending work rate and defensive acumen.
His willingness to push forward and help the team in the attack means that Anguissa could be close to the perfect replacement for Doucoure.
Watford’s ability to change managers at will may not help the club or its players but if they stick with Gracia, things will change.
The Malaga boss has shown a marked change to the Hornets’ style of play and that has been evident in Doucoure and Roberto Pereyra’s success this season.

Both stars even struggled last season but under Gracia, they’ve achieved some kind of consistency. That further makes the move for Andre Zambo Anguissa that much more exciting, but Watford will have to act fast.
