Watford unlikely to land Juventus pair Pereyra, Lemina

Watford's chances of signing Roberto Pereyra and Mario Lemina have taken a hit, according to recent reports.

The Hornets have been linked with the Juventus pair this summer but it looks as though the attacking midfield pair will remain in Turin suggests Tuttosport.

Argentine winger Pereyra, 25, has impressed during pre-season after making just 16 appearances last season and is eager to stay with the Bianconeri and fight for his place in Massimiliano Allegri's first team.

Also likely to stay at the Juventus Stadium is Gabon international Lemina who now has a £17million price tag on his head. The 22-year-old is also a target for Real Betis but both the Spanish side and Watford will steer clear of his inflated asking price.
