The Hornets announced the signings of Younes Kaboul and Roberto Pereyra on Friday, as the Premier League side managed to address both the attack and backline.

Kaboul joins the Hornets with a veteran background in the PL, most recently playing with Sunderland. The central defender started and played 90 minutes for the Black Cats in their opening day defeat against Manchester City on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Pereyra joins Watford on a five-year deal after spending time with reigning Serie A champions Juventus. The 25-year-old scored six goals in two seasons with the Italian club.
