Watford want to retain the services of on-loan Barcelona winger Gerard Deulofeu, reports Mundo Deportivo.
The Hornets snapped up Deulofeu on loan during the January transfer window and he is set to return to his parent club.
However, they want to keep hold of him and will meet his representatives in the next few days to inform them of their intention to submit a bid to Barcelona.
They also want to confirm that the player is open to the move and find out if he has received offers from elsewhere.
According to Mundo Deportivo, the wideman has told Watford boss Javi Gracia that he is happy to stay at Vicarage Road.
Barca are open to selling the former Everton man, who is out of contract next year.
