Watford have confirmed the completion of the £7million signing of Ignacio Pussetto on a four-and-a-half-year deal from Udinese.
The 24-year-old has officially joined from the Serie A side and has penned a contract which will see him at Vicarage Road until at least the summer of 2025.
The Hornets released the news on Twitter, saying: “Welcome Ignacio. We’re pleased to announce the permanent signing of Argentinian winger Ignacio Pussetto from @Udinese_1896 on a four-and-a-half-year deal.”
Pussetto mustered just five goals in 50 games for Udinese, but new Hornets boss Nigel Pearson is hopeful he can get amongst the goals in England.
The Argentine forward – who can also play as a No9 – has netted just once this season, in the 3-1 defeat to Juventus.
Prior to his 18 months in Italy, the 5ft 11in forward played for Huracan in his native Argentina.
The winger scored 11 goals in 42 games for the club.
