Arsenal favourites to sign Watford midfielder Abdoulaye Doucoure

Doucoure is enjoying his best season in a Watford shirt, finding the back of the net seven times and providing three assists in his 26 Premier League games.

The Frenchman has been heavily linked with a move away from Vicarage Road this summer with a number of big clubs after his signature.

He revealed this week that the likes of Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool are all showing an interest.

And bookmakers Betfair have responded by pricing the Gunners as 9/4 favourites to sign the 25-year-old when the transfer window reopens.

Liverpool are behind at odds of 10/3, with Tottenham trailing at 9/2.

Doucoure insists he is not currently paying attention to the interest from clubs as he looks to end the season well with Watford.

Asked about interest from Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool, he told French outlet Telefoot: "It's true that these clubs are interested.

"But I'm at Watford for the moment and I want to finish my season well."

The lure of working under Arsene Wenger meant Arsenal would appeal to him over their north London rivals Tottenham.

And when asked to choose between Arsenal and Spurs during a rapid fire Q&A, Doucoure replied: "Arsenal because of Arsene Wenger."
