Juventus closing in on Udinese midfielder

Forza Udinese

Juventus are said to be lining up a summer swoop for Udinese's talented Argentine midfielder Roberto Pereyra.

Juventus are expected to be very active in the transfer market this summer and one of their easier targets may be Roberto Pereyra.

The 23-year-old has impressed at Udinese since arriving from River Plate in August 2011 and Juventus are considering pouncing at the end of the season.

Reports from Sky Sport Italia suggest that Juventus have already made their interest in Pereyra known to the Zebrette.

It is reported that Udinese are willing to listen to offers and have already begun searching South America for a replacement.

Over the years Udinese have become accustomed to developing talented players and then selling them off for profit in order to keep the books balanced.

Juventus and Udinese have done business in the past on multiple occasions and relations between the two clubs are good.

Pereyra made a name for himself when he shone at the 2011 FIFA Under-20 World Cup for Argentina and he has settled well in Italy.

Although being right-footed, Pereyra is comfortable playing on the left wing and brings a degree of versatility.
