Official: Udinese sign Musso

Udinese have officially signed goalkeeper Juan Augustin Musso from Racing Club de Avellaneda.

The 24-year-old shot-stopper has put together 80 appearances for his club in Argentina.

He put pen to paper on a contract with the Friulani to June 2023.

It remains to be seen if he will remain in Udine this season or be loaned out to Premier League side Watford.

Both Watford and Udinese are owned by the Pozzo family, so regularly exchange players.

Torino close on Watford's Pereyra

Torino are in negotiations to bring Watford midfielder Roberto Pereyra back to Serie A for around €20m.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, the talks have been going for some time and the original €30m asking price has been lowered significantly.

However, Toro want to get it even lower than €22m and continue to whittle down the details.

The 27-year-old Argentine spent most of his career in Italy at Udinese and Juventus, moving to Watford for €13m plus bonuses in 2016.

‘Karnezis hopes for Napoli call’

The agent of Udinese goalkeeper Orestis Karnezis says “no-one has ever called me” from Napoli but “we’d be very happy” if they did.

The Partenopei are looking to sign a goalkeeper this summer, as Pepe Reina is joining Milan on a free transfer.

However, they have already missed out on Bernd Leno, Rui Patricio, Mattia Perin and Andriy Lunin.

It’s thought Alex Meret is the top target now, but today there have been rumours that Karnezis is also in the frame.
