Sergio Furlan, Roberto Pereyra’s agent has claimed that Chelsea are interested in signing the midfielder from Watford.
The Argentine was requested by then Watford manager, Walter Mazzarri, joining in 2017, following his exploits with Juventus.
Pereyra has gone on to be an impressive player for Watford, becoming a first team player with a number of goals to his name.
“[Mazzarri] is why Maxi moved to England after two years at Juventus,” the agent told Tuttosport, “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.
“Maxi wouldn’t want to leave Watford at such an important time either.”
