Watford have completed the signing of 22-year-old Marc Navarro from Espanyol. The defender has signed a five-year contract at the Hornets, with the Spanish club confirming the Premier League side have paid a 2 million transfer fee.
Navarro is a player that spent most of his youth career at the Barcelona academy, switching to Espanyol when he turned 18. The defender then made his debut for Espanyol in 2017 and from that moment he has been a first team regular.
“Marc has attracted interest from a host of top European clubs, therefore we are delighted to have secured his services,” said Watford chairman Scott Duxbury. Navarro is Watford’s second Spanish signing of the summer after securing Gerard Deulofeu from FC Barcelona.
