Frenchman Abdoulaye Doucouré is a product of Rennes' youth system, where he made his debut for the first-team during the 2012/13 campaign. The midfielder immediately impressed, going on to feature over 90 times for the Ligue 1 side. 

In January 2016 Doucouré agreed a four-and-a-half year deal with the Hornets, before joining Granada on a six-month loan move. Making his debut against Spanish giants Real Madrid, Doucouré made 15 appearances for Granada before the season's end, playing a crucial role in the club's survival in La Liga. 

His Watford career took a while to get going, but slowly, assuredly, he has taken his opportunities. 

A man-of-the-match performance against Sunderland in April 2017 saw Doucs (his affectionate training ground nickname) really show the home fans what he was capable of and he's gone strength to strength since, earning his spot as a front-line central midfielder.
