When it comes to Watford, the first thing that springs to mind is unlikely to be a Brazilian wonderkid who Liverpool, Barcelona and others were tracking not so long ago.

But in 20-year-old João Pedro — someone who has not made any headlines this season having been injured at the start of Watford's return to the Premier League — that is exactly what the Vicarage Road outfit have on their hands.

South American football expert Tim Vickery once said he reminded him of a young Roque Santa Cruz, while Liverpool scout Dassler Marques reportedly watched on as Pedro scored his first professional hat-trick in 2019.

"I think every kid of my age wants big things, to play for big clubs in Europe, in the Champions League, become world champions with Brazilian side, win the Ballon D'Or," Pedro said at the time.

"He is a really interesting one and he is only 20 still, so he is still very young."

"It has worked out but it has been a funny one in that there was a lot of talk about him going to a far bigger club, with Barcelona, Man City and Liverpool all linked," Twenty3's Tom Bodell told via the latest podcast exclusively for Blood Red Club members.

He might make his first start of the season at the weekend as Liverpool travel to face Claudio Ranieri's side, having appeared twice off the bench (against Newcastle for 26 minutes and then against Leeds for 31 minutes) so far.
