Two months ago, we covered claims from Tutto Udinese that Udinese are planning a double raid on Watford for Roberto Pereyra and Ken Sema.

Another report from the same website now brings in the latest development on the Argentina international’s future at Vicarage Road.

The attacking midfielder signed for the Hornets from Juventus in 2016 and prior to joining the Turin club in 2015, he spent four seasons at Udinese.

The 29-year-old has apparently ‘shown the desire’ to return to his former side this summer, and Tutto Udinese state that Gino Pozzo could satisfy him.

The Italian side and Watford are both owned by the Pozzo family, meaning any potential transfer would likely be concluded with ease.

Udinese’s chances of signing the player ‘will depend on’ where Watford will finish the season. They are currently 18th in the table with 34 points, level on points with 17th place Aston Villa.

If Watford drop to the Championship, a potential transfer would be ‘much easier’.

Apart from this, the Serie A side need to cut ties with Rodrigo De Paul because Udinese will not be able to have both players in the squad. If De Paul were to move elsewhere, the report adds, Pereyra would be the ‘right player’ to replace his compatriot.
