AS Roma have continued their summer acquisitions on Wednesday night officially announcing the capture of Juan Manuel Iturbe from Hellas Verona for €22m.
The deal in fact is likely to be higher, with Roma announcing that another €2.5m may become payable with add-ons, with the Romans also need to pay the player’s agent fee.
The highly-rated 21-year-old Argentine forward has penned a five year deal at the Stadio Olimpico, having played just one season at Hellas Verona after he joined the club from Porto last summer.
Last season Iturbe scored eight goals in 33 games for Verona.
Roma have also signed Urby Emanuelson and Ashley Cole in recent days.
