Zambia: Watford Eye Evans Kangwa

ENGLISH Championship side, Watford Football Club, are reportedly eyeing Nkana striker, Evans Kangwa, who will soon be heading to Europe to attend trials at various clubs.

Kangwa, who was golden boot winner at the 2011 COSAFA Under-20 Championship in Botswana, is believed to have attracted a lot of attention from teams in Europe.

Sources at Nkana said the 11-time league champions had received preliminary interest for Kangwa, who almost sealed a deal with South African club, Orlando Pirates earlier this year, from Watford coached by Italian legend, Gianfranco Zola.

"One thing for sure is that he will be heading to Europe for trials and Watford are one of the teams interested in looking at him.

"Officially, there is nothing on the table but we are waiting for official offers," a Nkana source told MTNFootball.com.

Kangwa, who in the past also attracted the attention of Dutch side, Feyenoord, is part of the Zambian team that goes into camp this weekend for a friendly match against Tanzania on December 22.

The Nkana striker, who was part of the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) winning squad, scored for Zambia's developmental squad in their 1-2 away loss to Saudi Arabia recently.

And Nkana striker, Reynolds Kampamba is optimistic that Swiss side, Young Boys will sign him on after a two-week trial spell.

"I think I did enough to impress the coaches at the club and I enjoyed the trials. Now, I wait to hear from the officials the outcome of everything," Kampamba, who returned home on Tuesday, told MTNFootball.com.

Chipolopolo striker, Emmanuel Mayuka was the last Zambian player at Young Boys before trekking to England at Southampton.
