Watford have strengthened their forward line with the signing of former Roma and Sampdoria striker Stefano Okaka from Anderlecht.
The 27-year-old, who has played for Italy four times, scoring on his debut against Albania in November 2014, notched 17 goals for Anderlecht last season.
A statement on the Vicarage Road club's website confirmed he had joined the Hornets on a five-year contract, following last week's triple swoop for Daryl Janmaat, Roberto Pereyra and Younes Kaboul.
Okaka has experience of English football having spent time on loan with Fulham in 2010.
