The Watford midfielder has been consistently linked with a move to Everton, with Watford boss Javi Gracia previously expressing concern that his powerful French midfielder could leave the club for Everton.
Speaking ahead of the January transfer window, Garcia said: “Last season every week we were talking about Liverpool or Everton, all the clubs that were interested in him (Doucoure).
“We can speak about it again. For me Doucoure is a great player, a very important player for us.
“I do not know what will happen. It doesn’t surprise me other clubs want to sign him because he is a very good player”.
