Reports in France have claimed that highly-rated Lens striker David Faupala is keen on a move to Championship side Watford.
The 16-year-old has been linked to a number of European sides including Manchester City and Juventus after impressing for France's Under-17s.
The Hornets have reportedly offered Faupala a four-year deal and his agent, Jennifer Mendelewitsch, says that the youngster is hopeful of sealing a switch to Vicarage Road.
"This is no passing fancy, it is a footballing choice, he wants to play," she told L'Equipe.
"David has a problem with some coaches. He feels exploited, just like his parents, by the club that has educated him."
