Buenos Aires side Velez Sarsfield had said that the 21-year-old would fly to Wearside on Thursday to finalise his move but he will now not arrive in England until the weekend.
A statement on Velez's official website read: "Given the imminent transfer of Gino Peruzzi to Sunderland Association Football Club, finally next Sunday, July 14, both the player and the directors Julio Baldomar and Eduardo Ordonez will travel to England to complete initial contracts between the parties and thus close the sale."
The Black Cats are also closing in on Juventus midfielder Emanuele Giaccherini, with manager Antonio Conte having told reporters the Italy international is leaving to help ease the financial burden on the club.
