Pereyra could be set for a big club move
Watford technical director Filippo Giraldi admits Roberto Pereyra could end up playing at a big club like Chelsea in the future.
Giraldi was responding to reports that Serie A side Torino were going to make a move for the player in the summer and he says he sees the South American playing for one of the big boys in the future.
Giraldi quickly followed that up by stating that Watford would like to keep him at Vicarage Road if possible.
"I say this with sincerity; I don't like to comment on market rumours. In football, nothing is impossible, but I see it as a highly unlikely situation, for us he is a very important player," Giraldi said.
"I think he can go to a great team, I say it with all due respect to Torino. I see him as a potential Chelsea player.
"He played at Juventus, but he lacked continuity. With us he has excellent numbers, I see him in a great team.
"We will do everything to keep him, otherwise he will go to a big one."
