Former Millwall loanee Benik Afobe is being linked with a summer switch to Watford.
The Athletic claim that the Stoke City player, who spent last season on loan with the Lions, is on the Hornets’ shortlist of potential striker signings.
Afobe, 29, has one year left on his contract and is coming off a productive season where he scored 13 goals in 41 appearances for Millwall.
The same website have pointed out that Afobe worked with new Watford head coach Rob Edwards when he was on the coaching staff at Wolves.
“For us to bring in a player on loan who has not done as much in the past couple of years as he’d have liked, for reasons that a lot are out of his control, probably some people would have criticised the signing,” Rowett told our paper in late April.
“But if you look at it he has been a really successful signing. He’s had a big impact on our season and is our top-scorer. I believe still, because I know his quality, that he should have had more – and I said that to him on Tuesday. He should be on 15 at least now.
