DONE DEAL: Roma sign dazzling Liverpool target for a bargin £17.4m
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.
