The agent of Roberto Pereyra claims Maurizio Sarri and wants to bring him to Chelsea in the January transfer window.
It is no secret that we are looking to do a number of transfer deals over the course of the next few weeks, as Sarri has told the clubs hierarchy that he wants to sign at least two players.[the_ad id=”164″]
The Italian knows where he needs to improve and with all the speculation surrounding the likes of Willian, Eden Hazard and Alvaro Morata over the past few months, another attacker is reportedly on the shopping list.
And Pereyra, who has enjoyed an excellent season for the Hornets so far, netting six times in the Premier League, has been mentioned on a few occasions over the past few months.
Now his agent has claimed that Sarri is keen to take him to Stamford Bridge this month, Sergio Furlan told TuttoSport: ‘Do we like an Italian technician? Easy: Walter Mazzarri. But I could also say Sarri.
‘A transfer in January? In the market you can never say never, but I tend to exclude it almost always.
‘Maxi does not want to leave his team in such a delicate moment, he is focused on Watford, and the club does not want to sell it in the middle of the championship.
‘In these weeks Chelsea have tried for him, it is true, but also without finding a breach.
‘Maxi is a pure ball of Sarri, even if he has never coached him. I talked about it repeatedly with [Napoli president] De Laurentiis.
‘It seemed like it was done, but then the Higuain-Juve operation blew up everything, suddenly.’[the_ad id=”164″]
