The multi-million pound fee that Newcastle United will have to pay for Watford star revealed
Football League World
This comes in the aftermath of Newcastle United submitting a £20 million bid for the Brazilian.
The 20-year old is considered a top target by Eddie Howe’s side as the Magpies look to improve their team before the looming September 1 transfer deadline.
Given Pedro still has three years remaining on his current deal, Watford do still have some control in their negotiating stance.
The sale of Emmanuel Dennis to Nottingham Forest late last week will also likely be playing a role in the club’s position regarding Pedro.
The club will want to avoid losing too much of its star attacking talent, with Ismaila Sarr also under increasing transfer speculation.
The forward bagged three goals from 28 Premier League appearances last season.

Pedro has already opened his account for Rob Edwards’ side this campaign, scoring the winner in the team’s opening fixture with Sheffield United.
Up next for Watford is a trip to face Birmingham City this evening at St. Andrew’s.
Considering the sale for Dennis was worth up to £20 million to Watford, it only makes sense that the price for their other attacking options increased as a result.
The team cannot afford to lose all three of Sarr, Dennis and Pedro in one summer.
Even with replacements signed, there is no guarantee that incomings could have the same impact as these three star players.
Bringing in a whole new attack in one window requires a learning process from each part to build a chemistry with their new teammates.
Watford could really be set back on their promotion ambitions if potential replacements don’t gel in the same way this dynamic trio have so far into the new term.
