Torino manager Walter Mazzarri was at Watford during the 2016/17 season and in his only summer transfer window at Vicarage Road, he signed Roberto Pereyra from Juventus.

Last month, we relayed news from Italy that Mazzarri wanted his club president Urbano Cairo to sign the attacking midfielder in the winter market.

No deal took shape and Calciomercato now explains the ‘excessive’ financial demands of the Hornets is the reason the Serie A club failed to complete the Argentina international’s transfer.

It’s no longer a secret that Mazzarri’s desire is to coach the 28-year-old once again.

Having failed to land Pereyra in the last two windows, Torino have already started working on signing him in the summer.

The report claims it will be difficult for the Watford player to join Torino, if they do not qualify for next season’s European competition.

They are currently 10th in the league table with 31 points, trailing sixth placed AS Roma by four points and fourth placed AC Milan by five points.
