Watford have agreed a fee with Swedish club Ostersunds to sign midfielder Ken Sema.
Ostersunds are the Swedish outfit who caught the attention of the wider football public last season, thanks to a Europa League campaign that saw them beat Turkish giants Galatasary over two legs, as well as Bundesliga side Hertha Berlin, before going out to Arsenal, but only after giving The Gunners a scare by beating them at The Emirates, with Sema scoring the winning goal on that occasion.
That campaign put the team and its English manager, Graham Potter in the shop window, and the bigger clubs have now started to come calling. Potter has since left to take over as manager of Swansea City, and now Sema is set to join the exodus by signing for Watford, as reported by Sky Sports.
Born in Sweden to Congolese parents, Sema has represented his country at both under-23 and full international level, but is not part of the squad that has reached the World Cup Quarter-Finals.

He loves all sports but football is his abiding passion, and he still has dreams every now and then about scoring the winning goal in a Wembley Cup Final, even though his playing days are long gone. He follows most major leagues, across Europe at least, and has a favoured team in each. When he’s not watching, listening, reading or downloading podcasts about football, he spend his time worrying about his beloved Arsenal.
