Watford are interested in signing Boca Juniors' forward Cristian Pavon, it has been reported.

According to Argentine website Sportia, the Hornets are considering a move for the 23-year-old, but that a $30million release clause could prove to be a stumbling block.

The young forward can play as both a winger and a striker and has already earned 11 international caps.

He scored four goals and provided three assists in 15 games last season, while overall he has 30 goals and 32 assists from 109 appearances in all competitions.
