Watford rule out promoting £15m goalkeeper following Arsenal curiosity
Recent reports suggest that Ajax and Premier League club Arsenal are both interested in signing Watford goalkeeper Daniel Bachmann.
That emerges from a recent report by The Sun, which claims that both European giants were interested in adding the £ 15million shot stopper to their ranks during this summer’s transfer window.
Bachmann, 27, joined Watford in 2017 following a free transfer from Stoke City.
Despite being a member of the club for four years, the Austrian goalkeeper has only played 28 games in the senior national team in all competitions.
Interestingly, Ajax and Arsenal have expressed an interest in signing him despite the fact that the goalkeeper lacks top-notch experience and has three more years of contract left, according to The Sun.

It was found that Watford is refusing to approve a sale for the 27-year-old because head coach Xisco plans to use him in his team’s Premier League season next season.
After receiving little to no encouragement from Watford, Arsenal are now expected to turn their attention to Sheffield United’s Aaron Ramsdale.
David Moyes added more information to their report, claiming that David Moyes was also interested in Bachmann prior to signing Paris Saint Germain goalkeeper Alfonso Areola.
