River Plate striker Rafael Borré is certainly one of the footballers most involved in transfer rumours over the past few years.
Now that his contract with the Argentine side expires this month, there’s a lot more noise going on about his future, as his signing is disputed not only in South America, but in Europe as well.
Updates from TNT Sports now say there’s a Premier League club who are interested in the 25-year-old this summer, and that’s Watford.
The Hornets are said to be ‘fighting’ Lazio for his signing, according to journalist Sebastian Srur, as they see his free arrival as a good opportunity for the summer market.
TNT Sports insists that despite the ‘hope’ from River Plate fans and manager Marcelo Gallardo, the player will not stay at the club following the end of his contract.
Recent reports from Brazil claimed that the striker has turned down offers from New York City, Besiktas and Hamburg. So it seems that it’s a matter of having good arguments to convince the player, and perhaps Watford could do it with a place in the Premier League for next season.
