While we’ve talked a lot about the likes of Luis Suárez and Cucho Hernández when it comes to Watford loans, they aren’t the only ones enjoying temporary seasons away from Vicarage Road.
There’s also Jaime Alvarado, sent to spend some time with CF Badalona in Spain’s third-tier, who has impressed enough to earn himself another move, but this time to Athletico Paranaense in Brazil.
We covered a report from El Espectador on Thursday, who see this as a ‘big jump’ in his career, and explained he would be moving there on a one-year loan.
This has now been backed up by TuttoMercatoWeb, who report the story as an exclusive, confirming that Alvarado will be joining on a temporary deal, and he’s very close to doing so.
It’s stated ‘only the last signatures and details’ are needed to be sorted before the loan goes through, where he is expected to try and fill the void left by Bruno Guimarāes’ departure to Lyon.
However, they also add that on top of the loan, Athletico Paranaense will also have ‘a right to buy’, giving them the chance to make the move for the Watford midfielder permanent.
And for those wondering how an Italian website could be privy to information about the Hornets, let’s remember who owns the Vicarage Road based club.
