Inter in Iturbe talks with Porto

It’s claimed that Inter’s negotiations with Porto also include an offer for Juan Iturbe, who was at River Plate on loan.

The son of Porto President Jorge Nuno Pinto Da Costa was in Milan over the last few days and photographed in talks with Nerazzurri directors.

At the time it was rumoured the discussion was about Ezequiel Schelotto, Fernando and Alvaro Pereira.

Sky Sport Italia today report the real subject of the visit was Iturbe, the 20-year-old Argentina youth international.

The right-sided striker spent the last six months on loan at River Plate, where he scored three goals in 17 games and provided two assists.

The big problem potentially holding back the move to Inter is his lack of an EU passport, as he has two nationalities – Argentina and Paraguay.

Inter have only one non-EU slot left in their squad and are eager to keep hold of it until the transfer deadline in case of sudden bargains.
