Transfer Flashbacks: Roberto Pereyra

Transfer Flashbacks: Roberto Pereyra

Back in the summer of 2016, Watford signed attacking midfielder Roberto Pereyra from Juventus as Gino Pozzo looked to back the club’s new manager Walter Mazzarri.

An Argentina international coming from a team such as Juventus, unsurprisingly, Watford supporters were delighted once Pereyra’s transfer to Vicarage Road was officially announced.

In regards to Mazzarri’s time at Vicarage Road, it was far from a success with the Italian leaving Watford after just one season following the club’s 17th place finish in the 2016/17 Premier League campaign.

But as for Pereyra, things could not have been more different. In his two years at the club so far, the 24-year-old has performed exceptionally well and has shown exactly why the Watford faithful were so glad to see him arrive back in 2016.

This campaign, in particular, Pereyra has been impressive having scored five goals in 10 Premier League appearances.

With him in the side, the Hornets are such a threat going forward. The former Juventus man operates in the half spaces so well and possesses the technical skill to easily beat a defender.

All in all, Pereyra has been a superb addition to Watford’s squad and looks to be getting even better under Javi Gracia.
