Pereyra: Has become Udinese's latest summer signing after joining from River Plate
Udinese's summer spending spree has continued with the signing of Uruguay international Maximiliano Pereyra from River Plate.
The 27-year-old right-back has penned a five-year deal with the Serie A outfit to join from the Argentinian giants.
The Friuli outfit have also acquired Italian goalkeeper Daniele Padelli on a season-long deal from Sampdoria and he becomes Udinese's 13th summer reinforcement.
Udinese will play in this season's group stage of the Europa League against Atletico Madrid, Rennes from France and Switzerland's FC Sion.
The Italian club were knocked out of the UEFA Champions League qualifiers by Arsenal last week, going down 3-1 on aggregate.
