Villarreal close €15m deal for left-back Pervis Estupinan

Villarreal have agreed a fee with Watford for Ecuador full-back Pervis Estupinan, according to reports.

22-year-old Estupinan impressed on loan at Osasuna last season, leading to a number of important clubs showing interest.

He will return to La Liga, this time on a permanent deal with Villarreal set to pay around €15m, Marca reports.

Villarreal want a new left-back after losing Alberto Moreno for six months to a serious ACL injury.

The Yellow Submarine made an approach for Juventus’ Italian international Mattia De Sciglio, but will instead sign Estupinan.

Estupinan will pen a five-year deal at Villarreal and become their fifth signing of the summer.

Takefusa Kubo, Dani Parejo, Francis Coquelin and Geronimo Rulli have already arrived at El Madrigal.

Villarreal started the La Liga season with a 1-1 home draw against newly-promoted Huesca on Sunday.

16/9 UPDATE:

Villarreal have now confirmed the signing of Estupinan from Watford on a SEVEN-year contract.
