Yeah, this one seems like its happening doesn't it.
Was really expecting a more obscure/continental signing with Brands (as in we'd be signing the likes of Richarlison before he came to Watford) yet it weirdly seems like another manager pick given Silva's recent history with that PL experience price tag to boot. Although Brands' speciality is the South American market isn't it? So I have to assume he knows plenty about the player too.
Perhaps it's the reality of us not being able to attract the likes of Lozano, etc? The age is right though. I must admit he didn't super catch my attention last year, perhaps I missed that early Watford golden period of the season.
