Samir, who has started 17 Serie A games this season, will be confirmed as a Watford player later this week.
Reports in Italy suggested that Udinese wanted defender Christian Kabasele to head in the opposite direction.
However the Watford Observer claims that the 30-year-old Belgian is not likely to be departing this month.
