Stefano Okaka is poised to depart Premier League side Watford, having arrived in Udine ahead of a medical with Udinese.

Okaka is expected to put pen to paper on a six-month loan deal, with an option to purchase at the end of the season inserted into the agreement.

Both Udinese and Watford are owned by the Pozzo family and they had invested in Granada before it was sold to Chinese businessman, Jiang Lizhang.
