Liverpool in Italian battle for impressive in-demand South American

Juventus and Roma are reportedly interested in signing Liverpool target Juan Manuel Iturbe.

 Iturbe is currently on a season-long loan at Hellas Verona from Portuguese giants Porto and has impressed in 21 appearances in Serie A.

Verona have an option to buy the 20-year-old for a 15 million euro (£12.3 million) fee but plan on selling him on for a profit immediately with a number of top European sides prepared to take part in a bidding war for the Argentine youth international.

Juventus and Roma, according to Tuttosport, are readying offers for Iturbe in the summer and view the former River Plate loanee as a huge prospect.

Liverpool are also believed to be tracking the youngster as a possible replacement for Iago Aspas, who has failed to settle in at Anfield, while other heavyweights Barcelona and Inter have also been linked with the striker in recent months. (SportsDirectNews)

It will be interesting to see where the man ends up
