The Italian media is starting to sound pretty confident about Torino’s chances of landing Roberto Pereyra from Watford.
In an update on the pursuit this Monday, newspaper Tuttosport claims that the Italian side shouldn’t have many problems to land the midfielder.
Tuttosport says that after paying €15m to sign Pereyra from Juventus in 2016, the Hornets would now demand €20m to sell him, which sounds on the cheap side.
It’s reported that the player makes €1.5m per season at Watford, and Torino would be fine to afford that. Both the transfer fee and his salary.
Tuttosport claims that Pereyra loves the city of Turin, which he got to know during his time at Juventus, and has already told his friends in Serie A that he would be keen on accepting the offer.
Torino are also planning to make a deal with Udinese, who are interested in Vittorio Parigini. So as both Udinese and Watford are owned by the Pozzo family, the local media expects it to be a good advantage for the Turin side.
