Watford are weighing up the possibilities to sign Rodrigo Aguirre from Udinese. The Serie A side are also eager to send the striker on loan. The 22-year-old had two successful loan spells which has triggered interest from the Premier League club.
The Hornets definitely need some reinforcements up front. They have lost Odion Ighalo to Chinese Super League after agreeing on a £20million deal with Changchun Yatai in January this year. M’Baye Niang left the club after a very quiet loan spell with the club while Troy Deeney had a bust-up with former coach Walter Mazzarri towards the end of the season.
Newly appointed coach Marco Silva has emphasised on the signing of a proper new forward to the club authority and has identified the Uruguayan as a potential target. Silva is known for turning around a club’s fortune with limited resources and has already sanctioned a move for the player.
It won’t give much pressure to the club coffers as the Hornets are looking for a loan deal as of now. Troy Deeney is likely to be handed the reins once more to lead the charge and Aguirre could be his strike partner.
The player had been on loan at Swiss side FC Lugano following a move to Nacional. He has impressed on his home soil and the Uruguayan club is likely to launch an effort to sign him permanently. But his agent has made it clear that the player is unlikely to stay at the club as he already has some lucrative offers on the table from across the world.
AS Roma also has enquired about the player’s availability as the Italian club continue their squad overhaul. Playing in the Premier League would be the ideal step for the youngster as it would give him the chance to rub shoulders with some of the biggest names.
Also, the chance to play under the guidance of Marco Silva will be an additional attraction. The Portuguese gaffer would be very excited to work with the young prospect. The lanky striker has the ideal physique and technique to thrive in the Premier League. He has not been a serial goal scorer as of yet but has shown his potential and if given a chance he could be a big asset for the team. Interestingly, both Udinese and Watford belong to the same ownership so it wouldn’t be much of a problem in securing the player’s signature.
