Iturbe focused on Verona

Juan Manuel Iturbe says it is too early to be thinking about where he will be playing his football next season.

The Argentine youngster, 20, has enjoyed an impressive start to life in Serie A with Verona following his loan switch from Porto.

“I’m not concerned about the future right now,” the forward told Sky Sport Italia. “I just want to focus on Verona.

“I’m really happy with life in Italy, I’ve settled well thanks to the help of everyone.”

Iturbe, who is understood to be on the radar of Roma, could next be in action when his outfit entertain city rivals Chievo.

“It will certainly be a tie of strong emotions,” he continued. “I can’t wait to take part in it.

“We at Verona have an excellent squad, it is always united and compact. Our objective is to stay in Serie A and we are doing that in fine fashion right now.

“It will be important to keep this pace up.”

Verona are sixth in the standings – 13 points above the drop zone.
