Watford Interested In Juventus Goalkeeper Norberto Neto

share on:

Watford have identified Juventus goalkeeper Norberto Neto as a possible transfer target this summer.

Norberto Neto ,27, has been understudy of Gianluigi Buffonin Turin for the past two seasons but could see his time at the club come to an end as the Serie A champions eye a move for Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny.

Buffon is expected to retire at the end of next season and Juventus are understood to see Szczesny as a move viable replacement than Neto for the long-serving Italian.

Tuttosport reports that Watford are interested in the Brazilian, although the Premier League outfit could face competition for his signature from Napoli and Valencia.

New Watford boss Marco Silva is keen to bring in a new goalkeeper to provide competition for current number one Heurelho Gomes, and a bid of £8m could be enough to prise Neto away from the Juventus Stadium.

Neto has made just 11 Serie A appearances during his two-year stay at Juventus.
