Watford scout Icelandic wonderkid

Watford are among several english teams including Arsenal and Man Utd keeping a close eye on Icelandic 17 year old attacking midfielder Birkir Bjarnason. The flamboyant midfielder who plays for Norwegian club Viking FK made his debut in the Norwegian Premiership earlier this month and is tipped for a huge future in the game.

Watford are believed to have sent scouts to watch the midfielder in action against Ham-Kam on the first day of the season after Bjarnason delivered several stunning performances for Viking FK during pre-season.

Viking FK manager believes Bjarnason will be a special player: “Its unbelievable that he's just 17 years old. He's the typical box-to-box player."

Watford are expected to keep a close eye the player’s progress in the coming months.
