Czech Republic international Jakub Jankto is once again on the radar of a number of Premier League clubs, the most recent being Marco Silva's Watford.

The 21-year-old Udinese midfielder spent last years campaign on loan at Ascoli, in Italy's second division - netting five times. The ex-Slavia Prague ace used his time effectively, honing his technical ability, to ensure Udinese would give him the platform to shine this season.

Everything is aligning nicely for the starlet, as a whole host of clubs including Everton, Arsenal and Inter Milan are showing reported interest.

Sportmediaset (via tuttomercatoweb) are reporting that Watford are the latest to join the race, as Marco Silva looks to add depth and quality to the Hornets' midfield.

Despite being linked with Inter Milan and Italian Champions Juventus, Jankto is said to be an admirer of English football and the Premier League. 

Jankto's representative Beppe Risco recently revealed: "He’s a lover of English football... Do I see him more in the Premier League than other Leagues? Yes."

Silva has another clear advantage in his attempts to sign the talented youngster, with Watford's proprietors the Pozzo family also the owners of Udinese. The Hertfordshire outfit are expected to pursue the player in the upcoming January window.
