Premier League side Watford have joined the race to sign Algerian defender Faouzi Ghoulam, according to Italian media outlet Arena Napoli.
The left-back is a target for several clubs around Europe with Monaco, Marseille and Fenerbahce all said to be interested in the player that helped Algeria reach the last 16 of the 2014 World Cup.
Nigel Pearson has revitalised the football club and was the man who brought Riyad Mahrez to Leicester City.
Ghoulam has rarely featured this season in Serie A due to ongoing injury problems with his knee. Mario Rui has taken his place in the side.
