Real Mallorca set for Watford’s Cucho Hernandez

Real Mallorca are hopeful of concluding a loan deal for Watford winger Juan Camilo "Cucho" Hernandez, report Diario AS.

The 20-year-old is mainly a forward but he can also play as a right winger, and starred in his season-long loan at Huesca last campaign.

Having scored twice in his sole international cap for Colombia, Hernandez is tipped for a bright future in the game but appears unlikely to break into Watford’s first team this season.

He scored 20 goals across two seasons at Huesca – whom he helped to an inaugural promotion in 2018 – including four strikes last season, finding the net against both Barcelona and Real Madrid.

Hernandez joined the Hornets from Granada in the summer of 2017 and has also had a loan spell at America de Cali in his native Colombia.

He now appears set to be the latest loan arrival at the islanders following Takefusa Kubo joining on a season-long loan deal from Real Madrid.
