Sky Sports understands a host of clubs are weighing up a move for Watford star Lewis McGugan before the close of the transfer window.
McGugan is widely regarded as one of the best midfielders outside the Premier League after impressing for Nottingham Forest and Watford after emerging on the scene as an 18-year-old..
The classy playmaker came through the ranks at Forest and made over 200 appearances and scored 40 goals during his seven years at the City Ground.
McGugan joined Watford last summer and he quickly established himself as a key player at Vicarage Road, scoring 11 goals last term from midfield.
The 25-year-old set-piece specialist has an eye for a spectacular goal and several sides are thought to be ready to test Watford's resolve to hang on to McGugan.
Premier League new boys Burnley as well as Cardiff and Fulham are thought to be interested in McGugan as they look to bring in a goalscoring midfielder before the transfer window closes.
