Argentinian starlet has been dubbed the next Messi back in his homeland.
Premier League giants Liverpool, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur are all said to be interested in signing coveted FC Porto wide man Juan Iturbe next season, according to reports in the Daily Mail.
The top-flight trio have been keeping close tabs on the former Argentina Under-20 international, so much so that they are all planning on sending scouts to watch Iturbe in action first hand on Monday.
Iturbe is currently spending a season-long loan spell away from the Portuguese giants with Serie A outfit Verona, where the 20-year-old has so far managed to catch the eye by recording an impressive six goals and five assists in total in his 31 league outings for his new team.
In fact, it is said that the Argentinian’s form for Verona so far in this campaign has been so impressive that the Italian top-flight side are now set to take up their option to sign Iturbe on a permanent contract come the end of the campaign, before then offloading the winger to the highest possible bidder.
