Kalu is set to be the fourth Nigerian to be on the Hornets’ payroll this season with William Troost-Ekong, Emmanuel Dennis, and on-loan goalkeeper Maduka Okoye all at the English club.

The 24-year-old will also be Watford’s fourth signing of the January transfer window following deals for defenders Hassane Kamara, Samir, and midfielder Edo Kayembe as the 17th-placed club battles against relegation.

Kalu is set to undergo his medicals on Wednesday with the deal expected to be announced after that. He continues a long line of Nigerians to have played for the club including Odion Ighalo, Isaac Success, and Oghenekaro Etebo.
