Liverpool are weighing up a summer bid for FC Porto forward Juan Manuel Iturbe, according to the Daily Express.
The Reds have been alerted of the player’s potential and they are hoping to sign the Argentine next summer when his loan deal with Hellas Verona comes to an end.
Liverpool officials will continue to monitor the progress of the talented forward, although they are likely to face a stiff competition for the player’s signature from Fiorentina, Napoli and Juventus.
While struggling for playing time at Estadio do Dragao, the 20-year-old has impressed at the start of his loan spell with Hellas Verona.
Iturbe managed two goals and one assist in six league matches for the Gialloblu, helping the team climb to fifth in Serie A.
Meanwhile, his suitors Liverpool are getting ready for the all-important clash against Premier League leaders Arsenal, where they are 12/5 to emerge victorious.
