Watford’s top-scorer for 2012/13 is a target for the top tier.
After impressing in England last season for Watford, young Udinese striker Matej Vydra has emerged as a target for Sunderland, West Bromwich Albion and West Ham United.
The Birmingham Mail says that the Baggies are preparing a double swoop for both Vydra and forgotten Manchester City forward Scott Sinclair.
West Brom are looking to improve their attack following Romelu Lukaku’s return to Chelsea after a 12-month loan and the club have already recruited Nicolas Anelka.
Now Vydra has undergone a medical at the Hawthorns as manager Steve Clarke looks to add further options in the final third of the field.
However, the Metro reports that both West Ham and the Black Cats are also interested in the Czech Republic international after an impressive spell with the Hornets.
The 21-year-old was named Championship Player of the Year after scoring 20 goals and guiding Watford to the play-off final – where they lost to Crystal Palace.
It is this form that has attracted the interest of several Premier League suitors and with the Hammers having missed out on Salomon Kalou, Vydra is a superb alternative.
Sunderland meanwhile want to continue their extensive list of new signings under Paolo Di Canio, with no fewer than nine players joining the club this summer.
Di Canio has allowed Danny Graham to leave on-loan to Hull City and therefore the north east team are also a little light up-front.
How much Udinese want for the talented young forward is unknown, but West Brom appear to be leading the way after making the first move.
