Watford have reportedly acquired Benfica forward Andre Carrillo on a season-long loan.

The English side beat league rivals Crystal Palace and newcomers Newcastle to signing the marksman, who will join the likes of summer acquisition Richarlison in Marco Silva’s youthful frontline.

Silva always had the edge in the race to acquire Carrillo since the tactician managed the Peruvian during their tenure with Primeira Liga up-and-comers Sporting Lisbon, where the the two managed to clinch the Portuguese Cup in 2015.

The deal also provides the Hornets with the option of thereafter signing the 26-year-old on a permanent deal.
