Serie A side Romahave signed Argentina winger Juan Iturbe for a cool £17.4m, with Liverpool, Real Madrid and Juventus missing out on the man some have called the ‘new Lionel Messi’.

Udinese - Hellas Verona - Serie A Tim 2013/2014

Iturbe, 21, scored eight goals in 33 games for Verona last season, and moves to the Stadio Olimpico on a five year deal.

Liverpool had previously been linked with a move for the attacker, with Brendan Rodgers eager to boost his attacking line for an assault on the Champions League next season. The departure of Luis Suarez to Barcelona for £75m will surely see the Liverpool boss step up his pursuit of a number of key targets, but Iturbe is one name that will not be heading to Anfield this summer.

The £17.4m paid by Roma could rise by a further £2m depending on successes, with Iturbe joining former Chelsea defender Ashley Cole at the Serie A side for next season.
