Tottenham, Crystal Palace and Watford are reportedly battling for the Juventus midfielder Roberto Pereyra. The Premier League sides also have competition from Russia and Italy and the 25-year-old’s departure from the Old Lady seems very likely.
According to TuttoSport, Pereyra is respected and liked by Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri, but the latest additions to the club’s squad makes the player ripe for negotiations and a sale.
Juventus would want at least €18m or €20m to release the player, and he has also been followed by Napoli and Zenit. TuttoSport says that Pereyra’s first option would be to stay in Italy.
A couple of weeks ago, the newspaper had also claimed Watford’s interest, but at the time, they said the other Premier League clubs following the player were Swansea and West Ham.
So that’s now 5 Premier League clubs, at least it makes the story more interesting.
Pereyra made only 16 appearances last season. His contract with Juventus expires in 2020.
