Stefano Okaka to undergo medical with Udinese

Watford striker Stefano Okaka is predicted to undergo a medical with Udinese in the next few days.

Gianluca Di Marzio’s website reports Okaka will arrive in Udine on Sunday and take his medical 24 hours later.

The Sky Sport Italia journalist explains the 29-year-old can join the Zebrette on loan with an option to buy at the top of the season.

The former italy international last played in Serie A with Sampdoria, departing in the summer of 2015 to sign for Anderlecht and then Watford.

Okaka wasn't a part of the Hornets’ plans in the first half of the season, managing simply 47 minutes of competitive soccer.

Udinese and Watford are both owned by the Pozzo family, making this a straightforward deal.
