Roberto Pereyra’s current deal at Watford runs down in 2021.

According to Calciomercato, the former Juventus man ‘could leave’ the English club in the mid-season transfer window.

The Italian website doesn’t provide any explanation as to why the Argentina international wants to leave the Hornets, nor do they give information if any club is interested in acquiring his services.

Watford sacked their manager Javi Gracia last month and Quique Sánchez Flores was appointed as his successor. Since the latter took charge at Vicarage Road, 28-year-old Pereyra is yet to start a tie for the Hornets in the Premier League.

In Quique Sánchez Flores’ first game in charge, the South American came off the bench to score the equaliser in his side’s 2-2 draw against Arsenal.

Pereyra played the full 90 minutes in the EFL Cup clash against Swansea City, where he scored and managed an assist as Watford managed a 2-1 win over the Welsh club.

However, his performance against Swansea wasn’t enough to make it to the starting XI against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Calciomercato believe there’s a possibility Quique Sánchez Flores doesn’t rate Pereyra, which is why the player could be looking for a way out in January.

It’s a long shot.
