Juventus midfielder Pereyra to bypass West Ham, Tottenham for Zenit

Juventus midfielder Roberto Pereyra is set to rebuff interest from Tottenham and West Ham United in favour of a move to Russian giants Zenit Saint Petersburg, according to Tuttosport.

The Argentine, who joined the Turin club from Udinese on a permanent deal last year, has been deemed surplus to requirements by the Serie A champions.

The report states that Zenit are ready to meet Juventus' £13million valuation of the player and have already held talks with the representatives of there 25-year-old.

The Old Lady of Turin reportedly rejected West Ham's £11.5m bid for the player last month.
