Watford are ready to battle Inter for the signature of Galatasaray talent Ozan Kabak.

Inter have been looking to land the highly-rated defender and the presence of a €7.5m release clause in his contract means Galatasaray are not in the driving seat.

But the Italian giants are at risk of losing Kabak as, according to FcInterNews.it, Watford have entered the race with force.

The Premier League side are ready to meet the Turk's release clause and are also ready to let him complete the season in Turkey before then heading to England.

Inter, who need to free up a non-EU spot for Kabak, view him as a huge talent and Watford's entry into the race complicates matters for the Nerazzurri.

Kabak is a product of Galatasaray's youth set-up and made his senior debut in May last year.

Just 18 years old, the centre-back has made 13 appearances in the Turkish Super Lig this season.

Kabak has also tasted Champions League group stage football.
