The 25-year-old attacking midfielder represented Udinese for three seasons from 2011 before joining Juve. He made 52 appearances in 2014-15 and featured in the Champions League final, but found his chances limited last season.

Pereyra, who has 10 caps for Argentina and reached the 2015 Copa América final with the national team, becomes Watford’s latest new signing, with more incoming moves expected before the transfer window closes.
