In their first signing of this winter transfer window, Watford have secured the arrival of forward Ignacio Pussetto from sister-club Udinese in a deal believed to be worth in the region of an initial £7million. Watford have now bolstered positions which were destined to look somewhat thin should injury affect striker and skipper Troy Deeney or his supporting wingers Ismaïla Sarr and Gerard Deulofeu.
Ignacio Pussetto said “This is a huge step in my career. It was not an easy decision to move because it’s a huge step, but when I was at Udinese I heard a lot about Watford because it was a very close club. I’m excited to be here and I have to put in as much effort as I can for the good of the club. I watched the last game which we won against Bournemouth, a huge victory, and I hope to continue these positive results in order to go up the table, and for me to be able to contribute to this. If the manager thinks I am ready for Saturday I am available, but otherwise I will try my best and train hard in order to be in the squad as soon as possible.”
Ignacio Pussetto is known as a versatile forward who is comfortable operating as the main attacking outlet, as a winger, or in the number 10 role, and this could prove useful to his new team at a time when both Premier League and cup fixtures are arriving thick and fast.
