Ignacio Pussetto left Udinese to join Watford in the winter 2020 market and signed a four-and-a-half-year deal with the English club.

The Hornets were relegated from the Premier League at the end of that campaign, only for them to return to the top flight at the first ask after finishing second in the Championship last term.

Pussetto wasn’t a part of that feat, however, spending the season on loan at Udinese, managing four goals and three assists in 15 matches across all competitions, but his season was cut short after he suffered a serious injury last December and is yet to make an appearance since then.

That being said, the Argentine’s injury setback hasn’t stopped the Serie A side from considering to have him for the new campaign.

That’s according to TuttoMercatoWeb, who say the winger will ‘remain’ at the club for one more season.

Udinese have an intention to sign the South American on another loan deal and a ‘meeting between the parties’ is scheduled in the ‘next few days’ to ‘finalise’ the loan transfer agreement.

If TMW’s report is to be believed, Pussetto will therefore stay at Udinese on loan and the new temporary deal should be sealed soon.
