Gracia unsure on Okaka’s future

Javi Gracia has indicated that he would be open to any offers for Watford striker Stefano Okaka in the January transfer window.

Monaco have been linked with the 29-year-old Italian who moved to Vicarage Road from Anderlecht in the summer of 2016.

He has only started 13 Premier League matches for the Hornets though and has featured in just two games this season, with one of those being in the EFL Cup at Reading in August.

Okaka is keen to secure regular first-team football and could get it at Thierry Henry's struggling Monaco side.

"I will speak with Stefano or any other players about transfers when the moment arrives, but in this moment he is our player and his only focus in on trying to help the team," Gracia said.

"We have time to speak about different situations in the future. January is far away and I think we need to be focused on the next game. I will speak to the owner many times.

"I will tell him my opinions, but I think in this moment the best thing for the club is to look at the next game."

Watford face Everton on Monday and can be backed at 19/5 to beat the Toffees while a 1-1 draw at Goodison Park is available at 13/2.
