After signing Juraj Kucka, Imran Louza, Ozan Tufan, and Peter Etebo, the Hornets might still not be done shaking up their midfield.

Predicting Domingos Quina’s Watford Future

Watford have already signed four central-midfielders in this transfer window, and their shuffle in the center of the park may still not be finished.
