Watford reject £20m bid for Joao Pedro as Magpies target Chelsea’s Conor Gallagher
Reports states Watford’s stance is Joao Pedro is not for sale; the 20-year-old scored in the club’s opening-day win over Sheffield United; Conor Gallagher is also a Newcastle target; Eddie Howe is looking to strengthen in midfield after Jonjo Shelvey’s injury.
It is understood that Watford’s stance is the 20-year-old is not for sale.
Pedro has started all three of the club’s Championship games this season and scored the winner in the opening match against Sheffield United.
The Brazilian joined the Hornets from Fluminense in January 2020 as the club were relegated from the Premier League, but he scored nine goals in 38 appearances the following season as Watford secured automatic promotion.
However, last season, Watford were relegated again with Pedro scoring only three times in 28 league matches, contributing one assist.
