- Chelsea are interested in the signing of 28-year-old Argentine footballer Roberto Pereyra
- The agent of the Watford striker Sergio Furlan made this known while speaking in an interview
- Furlan added that it will be hard for Chelsea to sign his client at the ongoing January transfer
Watford midfielder Roberto Pereyra has reportedly emerged as a transfer target for Chelsea who are said to be ready to open their wallet for the signing of the Argentine star.
Sergio Furlan who is the agent of the 28-year-old footballer made this latest development known according to the report by Goal.
He believes his client's performances so far this season have caught the attention of the Stamford Bridge landlords.
Roberto Pereyra joined Premier League side Watford from reigning Italian champions Juventus in 2017, and the player has established himself in the first team of the Hornets.
“Mazzarri is why Maxi moved to England after two years at Juventus as he wanted him at Napoli in 2012 after his first year at Udinese. He wanted him for Torino in the summer too.
“Chelsea are interested as well but Watford have postponed everything until June.
“In the market you can never say never, but I can almost categorically rule out a January move. He's focused on the team and the club don't want to sell him halfway through a campaign,'' the agent told Tuttosport.
Chelsea are currently occupying fourth position on the Premier League standings with 44 points, while Watford occupy eight position with 29 points.

Chelsea have beaten a number of Premier League clubs to the signing and the winger will join Maurizio Sarri's men in the summer.
