After failing to land Roberto Pereyra in the last two transfer windows, reports in Italy claim Torino are still after the midfielder.

Two days ago, we carried a report from Tutto Mercato Web, who explained Watford’s €30m demand has caused a ‘sudden brake’ for any potential switch to Turin in the summer.

Calciomercato now claims the Serie A side are still chasing the Argentine and their manager Walter Mazzarri, who already trained the player when he was in charge at Vicarage Road, has expressed his desire to coach him again.

It’s once again claimed Javi Gracia’s side will need €30m to sanction the sale of the South American, but the Italian club’s president Urbano Cairo is unwilling to meet the demands laid out by the Hornets.

Torino are hoping to start a negotiation for Pereyra with Watford and try to convince the English club to lower the transfer fee.

Pereyra still has two years left on his contract and whether or not Watford will agree to sell him for less than €30m remains to be seen.
