Report: Genoa remain interested in Iturbe

John Solano

The future of Juan Iturbe is uncertain. The Paraguayan international ‘flopped’ during his loan spell at Bournemouth and failed to make an impression in England and will return to Roma.

As reported by TuttoMercatoWeb, Genoa, who were close to acquiring the player last summer before fan protests disrupted the operation, remain interested in the player. Genoa manager GianPiero Gasperini likes the youngster and sees him as an ideal reinforcement.

Roma manager Luciano Spalletti will certainly evaluate Iturbe upon his return to Italy, however, it’s unlikely he will remain at the club. Spalletti has an abundance of choices in attack between Perotti, Salah, El Shaarawy, Dzeko, and Totti so it’s unlikely Iturbe would be able to break into the Tuscan manager’s starting lineup.
