Italian outlet Messaggero Venneto today brings interesting claims on the future of Watford midfielder Roberto Pereyra.
Their main focus is on the interest from Udinese. The Italian side are close to selling Rodrigo De Paul to Leeds United, and the Hornets player could arrive as a replacement.
While the Friuli side wait for this move, there are actually other clubs who’ve been interested in Pereyra and could end up landing him first.
Messaggero Venuto says Genoa and Roma are both following the player, but his wish to move to Spain would benefit Sevilla. It’s claimed the La Liga side could secure Pereyra if they offer €10m for the transfer.
The player is reportedly waiting for all the offers to arrive, as he’s pretty comfortable at Watford while making £2m per season. The outlet writes that despite not appearing for the Hornets this season, the midfielder is still highly rated, especially because he continues to be called up for the Argentine national team.
Both Watford and Udinese are owned by the Pozzo family, which is an advantage for the Italian club. However, if the chess pieces can’t be moved around quickly enough in relation to finances then Pereyra could end up going elsewhere.
Udinese will want to come to a conclusion with Leeds United over De Paul as quickly as possible.
