Watford have had a £7million bid for Reims striker Remi Oudin rejected, according to reports.

The Sun is claiming that both the Hornets and Newcastle United are chasing the striker dubbed 'the new Van Persie', but that an initial bid from Watford has been turned down.

The 22-year-old scored ten goals for the Ligue 1 side this season and the Sun report that the French side want at least £10m for his services.
