Watford edge closer to landing Juventus midfielder Pereyra

Watford are inching closer to completing a deal for Juventus attacking midfielder Roberto Pereyra, according to Sky Sports.

The Hornets have reportedly agreed a £13million deal with the Turin club for the 25-year-old winger.

Watford's owners, who also own Italian club Udinese, are familiar with the Argentina international as he spent four years at Udinese before joining Juventus last summer.

The Hornets have already had a £7.8m bid rejected for the player this summer but an improved offer has them within striking distance of completing a transfer.
