Roberto Pereyra’s agent says the next 48 hours will be crucial in negotiations to bring him to Watford but claims it would be difficult for his client to turn down a move to the Premier League.
The Hornets are believed to have had a an initial offer of £10.4m accepted by Juventus, with the fee rising to £13m. It is now down to Gino Pozzo, who owned the player before at Udinese, Scott Duxbury and Walter Mazzarri to convince him to join the Hornets.
“At the moment I have no information on a medical being booked, but I can say that’s not true,” agent Claudio Vagheggi told Calciomercato.com. “There are negotiations in progress between the two clubs, who are working well. There is a basic deal, but in football you can never say until the signatures have been put on the paperwork. The two clubs are working to get the figures straight. I think the next 48 hours can be important, yes.”
Asked if the 25-year playmaker is keen on a move to Watford, he said: “Roberto is happy at Juventus. He wouldn’t turn down the Premier League, so we await the next few days with confidence.”
