Both the Colombian and the Brazilian press have been talking about the move, each with their own information.

Globo Esporte, the biggest sports outlet in Brazil, bring a story saying there are negotiations for the move. They claim they’ve managed to confirm the information from the Colombian press, but don’t really add any details to it.

Alvarado comes from Watford’s youth ranks and had three loan spells in Spain, having played for Real Valladolid, Hercules and Badalona.

He’s never had a chance to play for the Hornets.
