Watford have announced the signing of Croatian striker Stipe Perica from Udinese.

The 25-year-old's arrival is the fourth signing of pre-season, following the arrivals of Jeremy Ngakia, Francisco Sierralta and Glenn Murray.

Perica spent last season on loan with Belgian side Mouscron, where he scored seven goals in 15 games.

The Croatian has spent time in England with Chelsea previously, although he never actually played for the Blues during his two years on their books.

As well as arriving from fellow-Pozzo-owned club Udinese, Perica also shares agents with new head coach Vladimir Ivic.

The striker has signed a two-year deal keeping him at Vicarage Road until 2022.
