Everton and West Ham in talks for Juan Manuel Iturbe
Everton and West Ham United are meeting with Roma director of Football Walter Sabatini in London about a move for Argentina forward Juan Manuel Lturbe according to Gazzetta Dello Sport.
The 22 year old Argentinian forward looks to be on his way out of Italy, although the report states that he doesn’t want to leave.
Everton are in pole position and will try for a loan or a €20m move which would mean a loss for Roma who bought the player for €22m in 2014. He has scored 2 goals in 27 games for the Serie A club.
The Giallorossi would prefer a permanent transfer although Everton have offered €18m and West Ham €15m. There is also the possibility that they may try and go for Gervinho instead.
Would Iturbe be a decent signing?
