Roma in pole for Iturbe - report

Roma are in pole position to sign Verona playmaker Juan Manuel Iturbe, it has been reported this morning.

The Argentine trequartista has been in superb form this season for the Gialloblu, with several top European sides circling.

The youngster is on loan at the Bentegodi for the campaign from Porto, but Gazzetta dello Sport suggest the Verona will agree a €15m deal with the Portuguese team to sign him outright.

The pink paper though, also claims that Roma will then offer Andrea Mandorlini’s men €20m later this summer to take him to the capital.

Juventus are also said to be keeping tabs on Iturbe, as are Arsenal and Tottenham.
