Transfer Talk: Spurs linked Roberto Pereyra


Transfer Talk: Roberto Pereyra

West Ham United, Stoke City and Sunderland have been considering a move for unwanted Juventus attacking midfielder Roberto Pereyra. Reports in Italy are now suggesting that Tottenham have now made enquiries.

The 25-year-old (26 in January) Argentina international will definitely be sold after disappointing towards the end of the season after injury problems.

He signed for Juventus from Udinese Calcio, initially a season-long loan that was made permanent last summer. As an attacking midfielder, he didn't score any goals and only had one assist in 855 minutes of football. That is hardly a ringing endorsement to his talents and it isn't a surprise Juventus want to offload him, mind you they want to make a profit on the deal.

On the plus side he had a very good first season. Consistency is a key component of success, players have to be able to mentally handle setbacks and come back stronger. A change of scenery could well reignite him on the field.

I don't see West Ham or ourselves agreeing to pay what he cost Juventus.  Pereyra cost £10.67 million (€14m - US$15.6m - AUS$21.72m) plus the £1.14 million (€1.5m - US$1.67m - AUS$2.33m) loan fee.

Juventus are thus looking to recoup £11.81 million (€15.5m - US$17.27m - AUS$24.05m) although the story from Tuttosport (which reports stories from the Italian media) the Italians want around £13.72 million (€18m - US$20.05m - AUS$27.92m).

He has had a long period out with a thigh muscle injury and then missed further games with another injury. He is one of many possibles we are looking at and the Argentine will no doubt wait to see which UEFA Champions League clubs submit offers for him. You would think there will be further offers from Italy.
