Walter Mazzari’s Watford side have reportedly joined their premier league foes in the hunt for the Japanese attacker.
Keisuke Honda has had a disappointing season thus for with the rossoneri. He has rarely featured for Vincenzo Montella’s side and has expressed his frustration with the club in the past.
Despite MLS interest this past summer, Honda reexamined with Milan in the hopes of gaining more playing time with the new manager.
However, with the emergence of Niang and Suso, Honda has found playing time very difficult to come by. Multiple premier league clubs have inquired about the availability of the 30 year old Japanese international and it is very likely that Honda will be on the move this January.
Honda was acquired two seasons ago in the winter transfer period from CSKA Moscow where he was very impressive in his 5 seasons with the Russian club. A fresh start might be exactly what Honda needs in order to revive his career.
