Genoa to sign Iturbe

Former Roma and Verona winger Juan Iturbe is close to returning to Serie A with Genoa, states Sky Sport Italia.

Iturbe played in Italy between 2013 and 2017, and first came to prominence with Verona in the 2013-14 season.

He was later bought by Roma in the summer of 2014 to big expectations, considering the Giallorossi beat Juventus to his signature.

However his time in the capital ended on a sour note after a bright start, and the Argentine was sent out on loan to various clubs, including to the Premier League with Bournemouth.

Sky Sport Italia says that Genoa are closing in on bringing Iturbe back to Italy.

The Rossoblu have reportedly reached an agreement with Iturbe’s current side, Pumas of Mexico, for a loan with an obligation to buy worth €4m.
