Las Palmas manager Pepe Mel is eyeing up a move for Watford striker Adalberto Peñaranda this summer.

That’s according to Entrenadoresfutbol, who say he is ‘in the sights’ of the Segunda A side as they look to bolster their squad.

The website explains that Mel is keen to add a forward to his options, and Peñaranda is the man he has identified to as a target.

The 24-year-old is out of favour at Watford, having been out on loan every year since his £9.5m move from Udinese in 2016.

He spent last season as CSKA Sofia but has also enjoyed spells with the likes of Eupen, Malaga, Granada and returned to Udinese.

It is his two spells in Spain which are of interest to Mel, who believes he can get something out of the 24-year-old.

He has a contract at Watford until 2024, but they are unlikely to want him in the Premier League next season, and so a deal is unlikely to be difficult to get over the line.

Whether Las Palmas want a loan deal or a permanent one isn’t made clear at this point, but it seems the interest is there and Peñaranda could be set for another exit from Vicarage Road.
