Wilmot confident ex-Udinese pal Pussetti will be Watford success

Ben Wilmot says Ignacio Pussetto will make a big impact with Watford.

Wilmot played with the Argentine forward at Udinese last season, featuring together in high-profile games against Juventus and AC Milan, so is well placed to judge the qualities the 24-year-old will bring to the table.

“He's decent," said Wilmot, currently on-loan with Swansea City, to the club's website.

“He's lively and will bring energy to the team. He can play on the wing, down the middle, is decent with both feet, a good finisher and will shoot on sight. He's got pace about him and is a decent tricky little player. He's a bit different and has got a bit of everything.

"He's not lightning quick like Gerard [Deulofeu], but he's got energy and works really hard. He'll bring something else to the team we haven't got. It's a very good signing."
