Hellas Verona ready to buy Porto midfielder Iturbe

Hellas Verona are expected to buy on-loan Porto midfielder Juan Manuel Iturbe.

The Argentine has enjoyed an outstanding campaign with Verona this term.

"This is something that regards Hellas," agent Isidoro Gimenez told Tuttomercatoweb.

"For now we are awaiting news from Verona. Iturbe will remain there until May, then we'll see if Hellas buy out the player.

"We'll see what happens after that, but I cannot say anything because at the moment no club has spoken to me about making an offer to Verona in the summer.

"At the moment he is happy at Verona, but it's beyond doubt he is liked throughout Europe. The boy's intentions are to stay in Italy. He is happy here, so remaining in Serie A is first and foremost on the agenda.

"Having said that, it requires a club that will seriously build on his quality. He contributed to Verona's good season and is happy with his choice to come here."
