Watford have not received any offers for striker Luis Suarez from Lazio and any deal is far from complete, contrary to reports in Italy last week.

On Thursday, Corriere dello Sport claimed that the Rome-based side were now in poll position to sign the Colombian striker and were close to reaching an agreement with him over the move.

However, the Watford Observer has since learned that no such agreement is in place and that no offer is on the table as of yet.

Contact has been made regarding the striker, who has impressed on loan at Real Zaragoza during the current season, but currently nothing has advanced beyond initial discussions.

The player has been offered a new deal at Vicarage Road and has been told by Watford that he is part of their future plans. He has also previously stated that he is keen to play in the Premier League.

What's more, it is understood that the Italian side and the Hornets are still some distance apart with their valuations of the player, which could prove to be a stumbling block for anyone attempting to acquire his services when the summer transfer window opens.

Zaragoza are hopeful that Suarez will be on loan with them again next season, although that would depend on them sealing promotion to the Spanish top flight. Those plans could be scuppered by the impact of the coronavirus on La Liga, even with Zaragoza second in the Segunda Division, five points clear of the playoff places.
