WATFORD have signed Luigi Gaspar on a free transfer from Arsenal, according to reports.
Gaspar, who is the son of Arsenal's technical director Edu, signed for the Gunners in 2020.
The early stages of his career were marred by various injury issues which kept him out of action for the majority of his first season.
He was also limited to just seven appearances during the 2021-22 campaign.

Gaspar reportedly rejected a contract offer from Arsenal earlier this year in order to gain experience elsewhere.
