Watford are expected to complete the permanent signing of Ignacio Pussetto on Tuesday, with the Udinese winger set to undergo a medical.

The 24-year-old Argentine, who has made 12 Serie A appearances this season, is in line to become Watford's first signing of the January window.

Pussetto is due to join on a four-and-a-half-year contract from Udinese, who like Watford are owned by the Pozzo family, for around £7m - the same price the Italian club paid to sign him from Argentine side Huracan in July 2018.

He came off the bench in Udinese's 3-0 Serie A victory over Sassuolo, but is now closing in on joining up with Nigel Pearson's squad.

Watford have won 13 points from their last five league games and climbed out of the bottom three with a 3-0 win at Bournemouth on Sunday.
