AS Roma starlet Juan Iturbe supposedly as an offer from the Premier League, according to his agent, after speculation linking him with a summer transfer to Liverpool, according to the Metro.

His representative Gustavo Mascardi has hit out at the way Roma have dealt with his client’s injury problems this season, in what has been a somewhat slow start to life at the Stadio Olimpico for the Argentine.
Iturbe has previously shone with clubs like Porto and with Hellas Verona in Serie A, becoming regarded as one of the most promising young attacking midfielders in Europe, and he is seemingly still on Liverpool’s radar.
Brendan Rodgers lost his best player in Luis Suarez last summer, and a signing like Iturbe could certainly help improve his side’s attack, with the 21-year-old looking a great prospect for the future and a player who’d make a terrific long-term signing.
“Iturbe’s injury was not well understood by Roma and that didn’t give him confidence,” his agent is quoted as saying of the £19.7m-rated attacker.
“Will he leave? There are very good proposals from England for him.”
