Lorient join race to sign Watford’s Imran Louza

According to Foot MercatoFC Lorient have joined FC Metz in the race to sign out-of-favour Watford midfielder Imran Louza (24). 

Despite scoring on the opening day of the Championship season, game time has been at a premium for Moroccan international midfielder Louza in recent weeks. He has started just one of the club’s last 16 games, featuring only four times in that period, and missing out on the matchday squad entirely on four occasions. However, he did make a cameo appearance against Plymouth on New Year’s Day, in what was his first game for the club since the end of November. 

As previously reported by Foot MercatoMetz are interested in bringing former FC Nantes midfielder Louza back to Ligue 1. However, they could now face competition from Lorient, who have already held discussions with the player. Louza is sold on the move and it is now up to the clubs to reach an agreement.
