Verona to fight off bids for young duo

Hellas Verona are preparing themselves for an onslaught of bids for Jorginho and Juan Iturbe in January.

Reports in Corriere Fiorentino and Sky Sport Italia claim that the promoted club will come under-fire from several European sides over the winter transfer window for their attacking youngsters.

Corriere Fiorentino report that Fiorentina, Zenit St Petersburg and Sevilla will go for the Brazilian/Italian playmaker during the winter break, however, the Gialloblu are desperate to keep hold of him until the summer.

Iturbe meanwhile, is being tracked by Atletico Madrid and Barcelona, but Sky Sport Italia report that sporting director Sean Sogliano could take the Argentine trequartista with him to Milan, should he eventually replace Adriano Galliani in the San Siro boardroom.

Both have been instrumental to Verona’s impressive start to the season, scoring an impressive 10 goals between them.
