Watford boss Javi Gracia did not give away when he responded to questions about the future of Abdoulaye Doucoure.
The Frenchman recently spoke about interest from ‘big clubs’ after he was linked with moves to Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal.
And the Spaniard said he wasn’t sure if any of the top clubs were looking to sign one his side’s star players and was simply looking forward to their game against Everton this weekend.
“I have spoken with him about the movement when we play against Everton but not about that.” he said.
“I do not know if there are other big clubs interested in Doucoure or other players, but if there are clubs interested it is because they are playing well.
“I am interested in them playing well and we will see what happens in the future.” he added.
Scouts from some of the interested clubs are likely to be in attendance at Vicarage Road as Doucoure lines up for the Hornets against Sam Allardyce’s Everton side.
