Watford Opinion: Should Watford sign Pedrinho in the summer?
Watford are doing well in the Premier League, but manager Javi Gracia is looking for his next move, with a few players linked with a move to Vicarage Road (Watford Observer).
However, despite that, the Hornets sit 8th in the Premier League, level on points with 7th-placed Wolves but behind on goal difference.
While they had a good start to the season, things have petered out since then with the club currently trying their best to stay neck and neck in the race for 7th place.
Watford have been linked with moves for Gustavo, Martinelli and Lincoln (Watford Observer), as they look for their next bargain Brazilian.
The club benefited from the way Richarlison progressed before profiting from his move to Everton and are looking to try that again. While they have their targets, one man who should be on that shortlist is Pedrinho, given how well the Corinthians star has been playing.
Barely 20 years old, the Brazilian has lit up the Series A and the Copa Libertadores with his performances. While he is yet to score a senior goal for the club, like Gustavo, Pedrinho still remains a valid option for Watford.
A lot like Richarlison, the 20-year-old can play even as a number 10 if required. This is something that he has done so on many occasions for Corinthians. Add to that an electric turn of pace, agility, exquisite dribbling and a lethal left foot, he is a must-have star.
For the Hornets, however, what should interest the club is the fact that Pedrinho has been linked to former Barcelona superstar Neymar. A lot like the PSG superstar, the 20-year-old has a long way to go before he comes even close to replicating what the Brazilian has done.
If Pedrinho takes to the Premier League like how Richarlison did, and given his talent, Watford would benefit massively. That combined with his mentality, composure and ambition will help make the transition easier.

With Barcelona (Sun [h/t Goal]) also in the race and looking for their next Neymar, it could complicate things for Watford. However, the Hornets can offer the 20-year-old starlet a much better route to first-team football and that’s something that Pedrinho needs at this stage of his career.
