Udinese discover Pereyra

Udinese have reportedly snapped up River Plate's teenage talent Roberto Pereyra, who could be the new Alexis Sanchez.

The Friulani have made their fortune by scouring the South American market for young prospects and then turning them into stars.

There are rumours their latest discovery is 19-year-old River Plate creative midfielder Pereyra.

He can play both in a deeper role and as trequartista behind the strikers, having featured recently for Argentina in the Under-20 World Cup.

He is believed to have cost Udinese around €5m.
