Watford have signed Ignacio Pussetto from Udinese to a four-and-a-half-year deal.
The Premier League club are reported to have paid around £7 million, which is the same amount paid by Udinese when bringing in the 24-year-old from Huracán in July 2018.
Struggling for a regular starting role this season, starting only twice in twelve Serie A appearances, Pussetto makes the switch to Watford aiming to gain further European experience.
Racing Club had been hoping to take advantage of Pussetto’s squad status in Italy to take the versatile forward on loan but Udinese’s link to Watford through owners, the Pozzo family, saw the Hornets strike a deal.
As a result Huracán are set to receive around €200,000 by way of a sell-on clause.
