Pereyra open to Torino transfer

Roberto Pereyra is reported to be ‘enthusiastic’ about quitting Watford for a reunion with Walter Mazzarri at Torino.

‘Tucu’ Pereyra was brought to Watford by Mazzarri in 2016, with a €13m deal from Juventus.

According to Tuttosport, the Argentine is ‘enthusiastic’ about a return to Italy and the opportunity of working with Mazzarri again at Torino.

The Granata are pushing for a place in Europe and are currently on their longest unbeaten Serie A away streak since the 1970s.

He has contributed six goals and two assists in 21 Premier League appearances so far this season.

Watford sit in eighth place after eight wins, five draws and eight defeats.

Any transfer would need to be in the region of €20m.
