Watford are poised to make an £8.6m bid for Norwich transfer target Robin Olsen. 

According to Italian outlet Corriere dello Sport, Watford are very keen to bring the shot-stopper to England and are already preparing their first offer.

The report claims that Norwich, who have been previously linked with the Swede, and Bournemouth are also interested in signing Olsen.

He joined Roma last summer as a replacement for Alisson, who joined Liverpool and became the most expensive goalkeeper in the history of football at the time.

Olsen has made 27 starts in the Serie A, but Roma now seem willing to sell him on in the summer and sign a new number one as they look set to miss out on Champions League football.

Norwich are on the verge of promotion to the Premier League, with just one point needed from their last two matches to confirm their top-flight status – although they will also be promoted if Leeds fail to win both of their games.
