Transfer news: The Hornets are looking to replace Ipswich-bound Scott Loach

Watford manager Gianfranco Zola has admitted that he is interested in bringing Tottenham goalkeeper Carlo Cudicini or Arsenal stopper Manuel Almunia to Vicarage Road.

The Hornets look set to be losing Scott Loach to Championship rivals, Ipswich and the experienced stoppers at the north London rivals will be available on a free transfer.

“They are certainty good goalkeepers,” Zola told Sky Sports.

“If they come, they will be very good for this club.

“But it is too early to say. We will update you on that.”
