English-born Ghanaian forward Kwadwo Baah is set to make a move to newly promoted English Premier League side Watford FC after undergoing medical examination on Wednesday, according to Sky Sports.
A fee of £125k has been tabled for Kwadwo Baah; the 18-year-old has impressed for League One Rochdale this season and came close to joining Manchester City in the last transfer window.
Baah is out of contract in the summer so Watford would only be required to pay compensation for the player.
The Premier League returnees have tabled a £125k bid for the 18-year-old, who was previously in Crystal Palace’s academy.
Baah is considered to be a very highly-rated attacking midfielder or striker that has made huge strides forward under Rochdale boss Brian Barry-Murphy this season.
He has been linked with a number of Premier League clubs and came close to joining Manchester City in January.
Other clubs are understood to be monitoring the player’s situation but Watford have emerged as the frontrunners to sign the teenager.
Should the deal be completed, he would become Watford’s first signing since the club secured promotion back to the Premier League last week.
