Liverpool are ready to meet Porto's asking price for Juan Manuel Iturbe. The Argentine has been outstanding on-loan at Hellas Verona this season and is being linked with Liverpool and Barcelona.

Porto are prepared to sell Iturbe for £14 million and Reds boss Brendan Rodgers is ready to meet this valuation.

It's suggested Liverpool will seek to negotiate an agreement this month with the view to welcoming Iturbe to Anfield at the end of the season.
