Juventus midfielder Roberto Pereyra to join Zenit despite West Ham and Tottenham interest

9 Jun

Juventus midfielder Roberto Pereyra is set to snub interest from West Ham and Tottenham to join Zenit Saint Petersburg this summer.

The Serie A champions are striving to balance their books in the off season and view the Argentine as a player who is now surplus to requirements.

Pereyra joined Juve on loan from Udinese in 2014 before completing a permanent move a year later.

But last season Pereyra managed just 16 appearances for Massimiliano Allegri’s side and now Zenit are leading the race to seal his signature.

According to Tuttosport, Zenit are expected to meet Juve’s £13m valuation of the player and the Russian club have also met Pererya’s agent to discuss personal terms.

West Ham reportedly tabled a £11.5m offer for the 25-year-old last month but it was immediately rejected by Juve.
