Watford chief Giraldi can see Pereyra moving to Chelsea

Watford chief Filippo Giraldi can see Roberto Pereyra moving to Chelsea this summer.

Giraldi named the Blues as a potential destination for Pereyra when asked if the Argentine could potentially reunite with former coach Walter Mazzarri at Torino.

Speaking on Radio Kiss Kiss, the technical director said: "I do not like to comment on transfer market speculation.

"In football, nothing is impossible, but I think [a move to Torino] is a highly unlikely scenario because for us he is a very important player.

"I think he can go to a great team, and I say that with all due respect to Torino.

"I see him as a potential Chelsea player.

"He played at Juventus, but he lacked consistency. With us he has excellent statistics and I can see him playing in a great team.

"We will do everything we can to keep him, otherwise he will go to a big team."
