Danny Welbeck is reportedly in talks with Watford as the forward looks to find a new club.
Although Welbeck is out of contract and therefore not restricted by the transfer window deadline, it looks like he could be on his way to Watford before it shuts.
Welbeck has been linked with few clubs over the summer. His wage demands, it was reported, were simply too big.
According to the Daily Mail, he’s in talks with the Hornets who are hopeful of concluding a deal in the next 24 hours:

They seem to have been alerted to this move by the FootballInsider’s exclusive at 9am this morning.
Still only 28, this should be Welbeck’s biggest and best contract of his career but the forward’s knee problems at Arsenal must leave a lot of suitors with major doubts over committing to hefty wages over a number of years.
Under Unai Emery, Welbeck played just 14 times. In total, he scored 32 goals (with 15 assists) in 126 games for Arsenal following his £18m move from Manchester United in 2014.
