Official | Roberto Pereyra Signs
The Hornets are delighted to announce the signing of Argentina international Roberto Pereyra, subject to a work permit.
The 25-year-old attacking midfielder, who has moved to Watford from Serie A champions Juventus, has agreed a five-year deal at Vicarage Road.
Originally a season-long loan signing for the Turin outfit in July 2014, Pereyra made a €14m permanent move the following summer and played nearly 70 matches as Juventus secured back-to-back Serie A and Coppa Italia titles in 2014/15 and 2015/16, scoring six goals in total for the club.
He also featured in the 2015 Champions League final, during a 3-1 defeat to Barcelona in Berlin.
Pereyra began his professional career in Argentina with River Plate before earning a €2m move to Italy with Udinese, where he made 104 outings between 2011 and 2014.
Since making his international debut in October 2014, he has represented Argentina 10 times, including two appearances as Gerardo Martino’s men finished runners-up at the 2015 Copa America.
