Watford have signed teenage striker Uche Ikpeazu from Reading.
The 18-year-old has put pen to paper on a three-year contract at Vicarage Road after opting to leave Reading.
Watford's technical director Gian Luca Nani told the club's official website: "We are very pleased Uche is joining us at Watford.
"At 18 he is still young, but he's a very bright prospect and we're looking forward to seeing him progress under Gianfranco Zola."
The 6ft 3in forward scored 28 goals in as many appearances for Reading's Under-18s last season, including hat-tricks against Arsenal, Chelsea, Everton, Blackburn and QPR.
Ikpeazu, born in Harrow, joined Reading's Academy in 2010 and had a loan spell at non-league Didcot Town in 2012 aged 16.
