During Walter Mazzarri’s only summer transfer window at Watford in 2016, he signed Roberto Pereyra from Juventus.

Last month, we carried a report from Virgilio Sport, who explained the Italian coach is a ‘great admirer’ of the Argentine and has been trying to sign him for his current club, Torino.

On May 9th, Tuttosport reported the 28-year-old is a priority target for the Serie A side and Calciomercato now says the midfielder is one of the ‘main objectives’ for the Turin club.

It’s claimed Torino have been following the South American for the last year at the request of their manager, but without Europa League football on offer at the Italian club, the Hornets player ‘can say no’ to them.

The lack of European competition could make it ‘much more complicated’ for the Italian club to sign Pereyra, who has ‘several admirers around Europe’.

After Torino suffered a 4-1 defeat against Empoli, they are now seventh in the table with 60 points, trailing sixth placed AS Roma by three points with a game left to play in this season.
