Villarreal closing deal for Watford fullback Pervis Estupinan

Watford fullback Pervis Estupinan is on the brink of signing for Villarreal.

Marca says Villarreal will complete the signing of Estupinan in the coming days after reaching an agreement with Watford.

The left-back spent the 2019/20 on loan at Osasuna, where he shone and caught the eye of several teams in LaLiga Santander.

For Villarreal, Unai Emery made clear that he wanted to strengthen in this position due to the long-term absence of Alberto Moreno to injury.

The Yellow Submarine will pay a fee around 15 million euros for Estupinan, making him the most expensive defender in the club's history.

The 22-year-old Ecuadorian will put pen to paper on a five-year deal at the Estadio de la Ceramica.

Estupinan will become Villarreal's fifth signing of the summer, after Take Kubo, Dani Parejo, Francis Coquelin and Geronimo Rulli.
